Environment and energy partner Max Kelln and associate Amy Waite coauthored an article for Indianapolis Business Journal titled “What Indiana businesses should know about EPA’s PFAS strategy.” The article shares what businesses should know about the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA)’s recently released PFAS Strategic Roadmap, which outlines a variety of federal regulatory updates for the class of chemicals through 2024.
Kelln and Waite explain that PFAS (per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances) are found widely in consumer and industrial products. The authors highlight that with so many regulatory developments on the horizon, including Superfund liability for select PFAS, businesses should act now to see how PFAS affect their supply chains and waste streams.
The article also notes that many states have published maximum contaminant levels for select PFAS, and that Indiana has not taken this step but did initiate a statewide drinking water testing program to understand the occurrence of PFAS in Community Public Water Systems across Indiana.
