State and National Government Action

Superfund Sites Identified by EPA to have PFAS Contamination
The U.S. Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works has published a map highlighting 180 federal Superfund Sites that were identified by EPA as having PFAS contamination. The list was provided as part of EPA response to questions at the Committee’s March 2019 hearing entitled “Examining the federal response to the risks associated with PFAS.”

NC DHHS Cape Fear PFAS Community Survey (2019)
This survey was conducted to better understand the concerns that people living near the Chemours Fayetteville Works Facility have about exposure to chemicals called per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS).

CDC/ATSDR to Assess PFAS Exposure in Communities Near U.S. Military Bases
The CDC has announced plans to begin testing people who live in eight communities (none in NC) near current and former military installations for PFAS levels in blood and urine samples. Testing is expected to lay the groundwork for future multi-site health study that will look at the relationship between PFAS exposure and health outcomes.
