How Will the U.S. EPA’s New PFAS Rule Impact Ohio?

As previously reported, the U.S. EPA has proposed new regulations to limit the amount of the PFAS in drinking water. If finalized, public water systems will have three years to comply with the limits.

Bricker & Eckler, the OMA’s general counsel, has analyzed the EPA’s PFAS proposal and what it means for Ohio. The firm’s memo, available here, notes that “while the brunt of the regulation will fall on public water systems to implement, the impacts of the rule will surely be apparent across industries.” 3/23/2023
