PFAS are a class of human-made chemicals which includes Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl substances.
“CDPHE’s water testing results highlight the need for the state to do more to protect our communities from PFAS,” said Jennifer Peters, Water Programs Director at Clean Water Action. “Polluters should not be allowed to dump these chemicals into our water, and I urge the Colorado Water Quality Control Commission to pass a strong narrative water policy to rein in discharges of PFAS into Colorado waters.”
This is a big step toward equality and justice, and a more perfect union.
"Congress must act now to help the most impacted communities - disproportionately Black and other communities of color, recover and get back to work. The legislative response to Covid-19 needs to move us toward a just and sustainable future. Rebuilding from this pandemic must include an investment in infrastructure needed to ensure clean water for all, acting on climate by building resilient communities, supporting public transit, and making rapid investments in clean energy."
