The Environmental Protection Agency established first national limits on six types of 'forever chemicals' in drinking water to reduce health risks.

For the first time, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has set national limits for six types of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), known as 'forever chemicals', in drinking water, aiming to tackle their associated health risks including certain cancers and heart disease. This move is expected to impact 4,100 to 6,700 U.S. public water systems and comes with a funding support of $1 billion from the federal infrastructure law.
