Tell the EPA: Protect People from PFAS Contamination

Recent EWG analysis has revealed that up to 110 million Americans may be exposed to the hazardous nonstick chemicals PFOA and PFOS in their drinking water. These two water contaminants and other PFAS chemicals are linked to serious health effects like cancer, thyroid disease and weakened immunity.

The Environmental Protection Agency conducted national testing for PFAS chemicals in drinking water from 2013 to 2015, but did not collect or make public the full results. Millions of people weren’t informed that their water supplies are contaminated with PFAS chemicals because the level of the contaminant in their water did not exceed the EPA’s reporting level, which is 10 to 90 times HIGHER than what scientists say is safe.

It is outrageous that the EPA did not capture the full extent of contamination and inform members of the public that there could be PFAS chemicals in their drinking water. Stand with EWG and demand that the EPA immediately collects contamination data and releases it to the public.

I have a right to know what’s in my drinking water. I urge you to immediately collect PFAS contamination data and notify ALL Americans who may be at risk. PFAS chemicals are linked to serious health effects like cancer, thyroid disease and decreased immunity. The EPA should be working to protect Americans from harmful water contaminants, not covering up evidence. Please collect and release PFAS contamination data and clean up contamination sites around the country to ensure all Americans have safe drinking water.
