    EPA’s Proposed Designation of PFAS as Hazardous under CERCLA

    On September 6, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) published a proposed rule to designate two types of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) as hazardous under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA), better known as Superfund. Designating PFAS as hazardous under CERCLA poses multiple implications for counties, cities and other local entities, particularly around the reporting and cleanup of these substances. EPA is accepting comments on the proposed rule through November 7, 2022. We encourage local governments to submit their own comments. A template letter is available for download above.

    Join the National Association of Counties, the National League of Cities, the U.S. Conference of Mayors, the American Water Works Association and the Solid Waste Association of Northern America for a deep dive into the consequences of this rule for local governments.
