WASHINGTON – The Environmental Working Group (EWG) non-profit has welcomed a move to introduce new legislation to limit the discharge of PFAS by textile mills, and other plants, into drinking water supplies.

Senator Kirsten Gillibrand and Congressman Chris Pappas have announced plans to introduce an updated version of their Clean Water Standards for PFAS Act which aims to limit pollution by the chemicals which are commonly used in water- and stain-proof coatings for garments.

The new version of the act would speed up and make mandatory the Environmental Protection Agency’s non-binding deadlines in its PFAS Strategic Roadmap for setting standards which polluters must meet before discharging PFAS into water or treatment plants.
