Lend Your Voice to Get Toxic Chemicals Out of Our Waters
Waterways that provide drinking water and habitat for wildlife like the belted kingfisher are contaminated with highly toxic chemicals known as PFAS. These chemicals—known as “forever chemicals” because they persist in the environment for a very long time—expose people and wildlife to serious health risks, including cancers and impacts to the reproductive and immune systems. Contamination of our waters by these “forever chemicals” is widespread, affecting drinking water for millions of people across the country.
However, the Environmental Protection Agency is proposing drinking water standards that would provide long overdue federal protections against six types of PFAS in our nation’s drinking water.
Send a message to the Environmental Protection Agency in support of protections against six types of toxic chemicals in our nation’s drinking water.
