A number of organizations, including Testing for Pease and the Conservation Law Foundation, are asking state officials to treat PFAS compounds as a class of chemicals, rather than regulating them on a chemical-by-chemical basis.

The groups sent a letter to N.H. Department of Environmental Services Commissioner Robert Scott on Wednesday, petitioning the agency to “establish a drinking water standard” for PFAS chemicals that is “protective of public health.”

They maintained DES should adopt a “treatment technique approach” to deal with the thousands of PFAS chemicals, rather than trying to regulate them one by one.
