Multiple Lawsuits Filed Against EPA for Final PFAS Drinking Water Rule

Three petitions for lawsuits have been filed in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit against EPA for the Final PFAS National Primary Drinking Water Rule (NPDWR). The petitions were filed by water utility associations, chemical manufacturing trade groups, and Chemours, one of the chemical companies that makes PFAS.

These lawsuits will likely take several years to be processed. EPA and states will continue to move forward with the implementation of the Final PFAS NPDWR, unless there is a court order for EPA to stop action on the rule. For more information, read the NPR news story.
