California investigating PFAS sources

California has begun investigating sites that could be sources of PFAS (per- or polyfluoroalkyl chemicals) in its water system. The State has thus far visited airports, landfills, chrome platers and publicly owned treatment works. According to Jeff Longsworth, NAFEM legal counsel, Barnes & Thornburg, “California has indicated that it also may reach out to nonstick cookware and food packaging manufacturers in the future.”
