WE’LL BRING YOU UP TO SPEED IN A NEW YORK MINUTE!
These days, a lot of city and county officials, wastewater treatment operators, and industrial leaders in New York are thinking about PFAS. That’s because New York just passed some of the strictest PFAS regulations in the country.
HERE'S WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
- ALL New York Public Water Systems will be required to monitor for PFOA, PFOS, and 1,4-
- The number of people your PWS serves dictates how long you have to comply. PWS
serving 10K+ people have 60 days, those serving between 3300 and 9999 have 90 days,
and those serving less than 3300 have 6 months.
- Maximum Contaminant Levels (MCLs) are: PFOA (10 ppt), PFOS (10 ppt), and 1,4-Dioxane
- A violation deferral is available for 90 days after the new rules are registered – but you
must have a proactive sampling program in place to qualify.
- New York officials are under constant pressure to include additional PFAS compounds
to the rule.
CHOOSE YOUR LAB PARTNER WISELY
