As states have sought to protect their populations via regulations and improvements to local water quality, it has come to the point where state officials must bolster local efforts. This was the case in Massachusetts where the Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP) gave out grants to local water suppliers to combat the spread of PFAS.
PFAS are easily spread and are harmful in extremely small quantities, so it became a top priority for state officials to find a way to ensure the flow of clean water. This grant will allow the suppliers to more effectively distribute clean water to their communities. Hopefully this effort will prove fruitful in the fight against the forever chemicals.
