CFPUA COMMENTS ON DRAFT PROFILE RELEASED BY USDHHS

Yesterday afternoon, CFPUA submitted a public comment to the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) on its draft toxicological profile for perfluoroalkyls. The profile, released last week, reduces the Minimum Risk Levels previously established by the Agency for PFOA and PFOS compounds.

In our comment, CFPUA voiced our concern that levels of these compounds in our drinking water have exceeded the new Minimum Risk Levels on many occasions, and we repeated our call for these compounds to effectively controlled at the source.

CFPUA RECEIVES RESPONSE FROM NCDHHS ON USDHHS REPORT

Upon the release of the new draft toxicological report on per-fluorinated compounds mentioned above, CFPUA reached out to NCDEQ and NCDHHS for information on its implications on drinking water. Last week, NCDHHS responded and informed us that they are reviewing the report, but are not recommending additional steps at this time. We have not yet received a response from NCDEQ.
