Senate Passes Bill To Expand PFAS Monitoring, Eliminate Major Source of Contamination FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Environmental Working Group JUNE 27, 2019 WASHINGTON - The Senate today passed a defense spending bill including a bipartisan amendment to dramatically expand efforts to monitor the scope of the PFAS contamination crisis and eliminate a major source of the contamination. The amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act of 2020, by Sens. Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.), Tom Carper (D-Del.) and John Barrasso (R-Wyo.), would add the toxic fluorinated chemicals known as PFAS to the list of contaminants tracked by the U.S. Geological Survey and require public utilities to test tap water for PFAS chemicals. The amendment would also require manufacturers to report, through the Toxic Release Inventory, air and water discharges of many PFAS chemicals. And the defense bill will require the Pentagon to phase out by 2023 the use of PFAS-based firefighting foam and require military facilities to meet state cleanup standards. … For the entire release, see https://www.ewg.org/release/senate-passes-bill-expand-pfas-monitoring-eliminate-major-source-contamination -- Lenny Siegel Executive Director Center for Public Environmental Oversight a project of the Pacific Studies Center P.O.
