Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) is releasing a statement following the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) announcement concerning PFOA/PFOS in drinking water:
“What the EPA laid out this morning is what I have been demanding for over three years – an action plan to address PFOA/PFOS in drinking water, a process to establish a minimum contamination level, guidance for cleanup and remediation, and new research and monitoring so that we can better understand the risks to public health.
Though optimistic, I have watched this Administration and the one before it be all talk and no execution since I convened all of the federal agencies and local municipalities in September 2016 advocating for help for Warminster, Warrington, and Horsham. I intend to hold the EPA accountable for the promises they made today in righting this wrong for communities in Pennsylvania and across the nation.”
