EPA finalizes national standard for drinking water

Minnesota is the site of a high-profile drinking-water contamination case linked with so-called forever chemicals.  Advocates are hopeful residents will be protected in the future by a new national standard announced Wednesday.  The E-P-A unveiled a final rule that, for the first time, sets a legally enforceable drinking-water benchmark for P-FAS chemicals all states will have to follow.  Scientists have been highlighting health risks with more detection of P-FAS in everyday products and water sources.  Under the new rule, the E-P-A estimates between six and ten percent of 66 thousand public drinking water systems around the U-S may have to take action to reduce P-FAS.  All of them have three years to complete initial monitoring.  If levels exceed the new standards, these systems must take corrective action within five years.
