Learn how state agencies and legislatures can stop companies from polluting our rivers with toxic PFAS “forever chemicals.”

Until we can fully phase out the use of PFAS, we need to ensure that industries do not release these chemicals into our waterways. While few, if any, permits allow direct discharges of PFAS, states must also stop companies from sending PFAS to sewage treatment plants or releasing them in stormwater. Now is the time for states to act.
