Senators: Communities must have access to the facts to ensure levels of PFAS in local drinking water are safe
Jun 12, 2018Colorado U.S. Senator Michael Bennet, along with a bipartisan group of 11 Senators, this week demanded the administration release the results of a study regarding what levels of certain chemicals are safe in drinking water. According to recent news reports, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has been working to block the release of results from a Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) study on the toxic Per-and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS). PFAS are a class of toxic chemicals used in manufacturing that have been linked to a variety of cancers and serious health conditions.
