PFAS Federal Facility Accountability Act of 2018
This bill requires the federal government, on the request of a state, to cooperate with the state to address drinking water, surface water, ground water, sediment, or soil contaminated from a perfluorinated compound released from a federal facility or a former federal facility. A perfluorinated compound means a perfluoroalkyl substance, or a polyfluoroalkyl substance, that is man made and contains at least one fully fluorinated carbon atom.
Within a year, the Environmental Protection Agency must determine whether to designate perfluorinated compounds as hazardous substances.
