Tell the EPA that it must do more to protect communities from harmful PFAS pollution!
Current PFAS disposal practices are inadequate and can even exacerbate pollution. EPA must carry out more research to develop methods to manage, destroy, and dispose of PFAS safely. This is not a new issue -- communities impacted by PFAS pollution have raised concerns about additional PFAS exposure from unsafe disposal practices for years.
Instead of rushing to approve unproven methods to clean-up PFAS pollution, EPA should prioritize the protection of vulnerable communities by issuing strong safeguards to address PFAS pollution. Because PFAS are so difficult to clean-up, EPA must do everything in its power to strictly limit the use of PFAS to essential products and applications and to ensure these chemicals don’t end up in our air, water, and soil in the first place.
