The Maryland Department of Environment has found toxic “PFAS” chemicals in some of Maryland’s drinking water. According to the EPA, exposure to these chemicals can harm our health.
Our state recently passed a landmark bill to restrict the use of PFAS in manufacturing and consumer products, which is a great first step to turning off the tap on these toxic substances. But to fully ensure Marylanders are safe from PFAS in our water, we need to do more.
Maryland PIRG is calling on the governor to initiate programs to test for and clean up any PFAS contamination found in our water. Will you join us?
