California Businesses To Face More PFAS Scrutiny In 2020

Law360 (November 25, 2019, 3:42 PM EST) -- Over the past few years, per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances, or PFAS, have come under increased scrutiny from a variety of regulatory agencies. This year, California enacted A.B. 756, which authorizes the State Water Resources Control Board to order public water systems to monitor for PFAS, and to take specified actions in the event significant levels of PFAS are detected.

This new law is likely to significantly increase public awareness of PFAS, and put pressure on public water systems to take action with regard to PFAS. Companies should take note, and consider appropriate steps to avoid litigation and regulatory entanglements.
