“The EPA’s move to regulate PFAS and related chemicals in drinking water is going to have potentially significant impacts,” said Joel Johnston, a partner and shareholder at the national law firm Hall Estill which specializes in environmental and regulatory issues.

“Given these chemicals tend to linger in the environment and build up over time, coupled with their previous widespread use in both industrial and common household applications, it is likely that a significant number of water systems/supplies across the country are impacted, so water utilities and managers of impacted systems will need to implement new technologies to remove the compounds, or change their water source.”
