EPN Comments on Listing of Specific PFAS as Hazardous Constituents

On Wednesday, March 27, 2024, EPN submitted comments on EPA’s proposal to expand the scope of constituents under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) Section 3004(u). We commend EPA on its proposal to include nine PFAS chemicals that meet the criteria for being listed as hazardous constituents. We maintain that EPA, states, and facility operators must have the ability to adjust and update ongoing corrective and response actions to address new and challenging environmental hazards, such as the health effects posed by toxic PFAS chemicals. We also believe that EPA’s explanations are clear and should prevent any confusion regarding the applicability and implementation of this rule.
