Carper Statement on EPA’s Comprehensive National Strategy to Confront PFAS Pollution

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Tom Carper (D-Del.), Chairman of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, today released the following statement on U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)’s newly announced comprehensive Strategic Roadmap to confront PFAS contamination nationwide.

“I’m encouraged that EPA is giving this urgent public health threat the attention and seriousness it deserves. This is truly a soup-to-nuts plan—one that commits to cleaning up PFAS in our environment while also putting protections in place to prevent more of these forever chemicals from finding their way into our lives. After the previous administration failed to follow through on its plan to address PFAS contamination, EPA’s new leadership promised action. I look forward to working with them on living up to this commitment.”
