The city is looking for partner communities willing to join it in a lawsuit against the state’s new rules on PFAS chemicals in water, City Manager Shaun Mulholland said Tuesday.

“We are considering possibly filing an injunction against the process in which the rules were implemented,” Mulholland said.

The state is changing the limits on PFAS, a group of man-made chemicals that includes PFOA, PFOS, GenX, and many others that are used in manufacturing. The state had set the limit of PFAS in drinking water at 70 parts per trillion, identical to the United States Environmental Protection Agency’s limit, but the outcry after the chemicals were found in water in several communities is prompting action in Concord.
