EPA closer to unveiling plan for tackling ‘forever chemicals’

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will soon unveil a plan to address what it sees as “inadequate” regulations on a class of toxic chemicals that disproportionately affects vulnerable groups, according to documents obtained by The Hill.

The agency’s forthcoming effort to crack down on the chemicals called PFAS, which have been linked to health problems including kidney and testicular cancer, were previewed in a slideshow recently obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request.
