An Environmental Protection Agency official said the agency “intends to establish a maximum contaminant level” for two of the most prevalent PFAS chemicals.

David Ross, assistant administrator of EPA’s Office of Water, made the statement in response to a letter from a bipartisan group of U.S. senators led by Jeanne Shaheen, D-N.H. The senators asked EPA to set enforceable drinking water standards for two dangerous PFAS chemicals, PFOA and PFOS.

Ross said “the EPA is committed to following the MCL rulemaking process as established by the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA), a process that is designed to ensure public participation, transparency, and the use of the best available science and other technical information.”
