A Senate committee voted 5 to 0 Tuesday that an amended Senate Bill 287 ought to pass setting drinking water contaminant levels for four “forever chemicals.” The bill will next go before the full Senate for a vote.

As amended, the bill would set state PFAS maximum contaminant levels at the same levels recommended by the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services in 2019.

Implementation has been held up in litigation brought by PFAS manufacturer 3M and others.
