U.S. EPA Unveils Proposed PFAS Clean-Up Rules

The U.S. EPA has unveiled two proposed rules regarding PFAS. The rules would require the investigation and clean-up of certain PFAS at facilities that manage hazardous waste. OMA Connections Partner Vorys reports that the first proposed rule would designate nine specific PFAS as hazardous constituents under the Resource Conservation Recovery Act; the second would allow the U.S. EPA and authorized states to address a broader range of substances, including PFAS. 2/5/2024
