More than one million people in Michigan drink water with PFAS contamination. The state is developing drinking water standards for 7 PFAS chemicals — this is an important first step in getting PFAS out of our drinking water. Join us to help protect people who can get pregnant, children, and people with chronic health conditions from the harmful eﬀects of PFAS.
Clean Water Action and Clean Water Fund respectfully submit these comments regarding the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) National Primary Drinking Water Regulations: Proposed Lead and Copper Rule Revisions.
In 2018, Michigan voters went to the polls and voted overwhelmingly for candidates who promised to clean up our drinking water, hold corporate polluters accountable, end the ongoing threat of Enbridge’s Line 5 pipeline, and protect our Great Lakes. So far in the 100th state legislature, positive steps in that direction have been few and far between.
A Call for Improved Oversight and Transparency
The following table contains detailed information about oil and gas extraction NPDES permits to discharge wastewater to waters of the U.S. for states in the U.S. where permits were found during a systematic search. It includes general (G) and individual (I) permits.
When searching for general permits, it was not clear which permits were specific to oil and gas extraction operations; therefore, the numbers available in the table are not conclusive.
