CFPUA Update: December 29, 2017 | Federal Organizations Directed to Conduct Study on PFAS

Federal Organizations Directed to Conduct Study on PFAS

As part of the 2018 National Defense Authorization Act, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) were directed to conduct a study on human health impacts from per- polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) contamination in drinking water and groundwater. The study is to be completed by December 2023.

Federal attention to the issue of drinking water quality is welcome. Federal agencies set the regulatory standards that local water suppliers, such as CFPUA, follow. The more information available on the public health implications of unregulated compounds, the more information agencies such as the U.S Environmental Protection Agency have to make informed decisions on the best course forward.

Studies such as these take time, but the study timeline (five years) underscores the need for local water providers to investigate possible treatment options until discharge control can be put into place.

In 2018, CFPUA will remain committed to pursuing the most effective treatment technologies for our service area. The pilot test at Sweeney continues to produce valuable information on our options, and we will continue to provide that data with our partners at the local, state and federal levels.

CFPUA Holiday Schedule

CFPUA offices will be closed January 1, 2018 in observance of New Year’s Day.
