EPA Announces PFAS Strategic Roadmap


On October 18, 2021, EPA Administrator Michael S. Regan announced the agency’s PFAS Strategic Roadmap, laying out a whole-of-agency approach to addressing PFAS.

The roadmap sets timelines by which EPA plans to take specific actions and commits to bolder new policies to safeguard public health, protect the environment, and hold polluters accountable. Cumulatively, these actions will build upon one another and lead to more enduring and protective solutions.

Several key topics were proposed, including:

The roadmap comes as more and more states continue to push forward their own legislation and regulation on PFAS chemicals. Handling the issue at the federal level would allow for consistency across all 50 states with uniform compliance requirements.
