SACRAMENTO, Calif., March 14, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Attorneys from Singleton Schreiber today offered analysis of the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) proposed drinking water standards for "forever chemicals," which are perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS).
PFAS are a growing source of concern for public agencies, businesses, and individuals and increasingly the subject of federal legislation and nationwide litigation. These synthetic chemicals persist in drinking water in more than 2,800 communities throughout the United States and the human body for extended periods of time. While the risks of exposure are not yet fully known, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reports that prolonged exposure to PFAS can cause cancer, liver damage, decreased fertility, and increases the risk of asthma and thyroid disease. In addition, the CDC notes that PFAS are extremely persistent in the environment and resistant to typical environmental degradation processes, with the typical half-life of PFAS in the human body lasting from two to nine years.
The EPA's draft regulations proposed a maximum contaminant level (MCL) in a National Primary Drinking Water Regulation (NPDWR) for six Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances ("PFAS"). The MCL protects public health because it sets a maximum level of contaminant allowed in drinking water from a public water system. Specifically, the EPA is proposing an enforceable MCL for two PFAS compounds, PFOA and PFOS, at 4 parts per trillion (4.0 nanograms/Liter), which is significantly lower than the previous screening level of 70 parts per trillion. The EPA anticipates that if these regulations are fully implemented, the regulations will reduce tens of thousands of PFAS-attributable illnesses or deaths.
This announcement creates a regulatory burden and expense for many of the nation's public entities and individuals faced with cleaning up PFAS contamination. Mitigating the property impacts of PFAS is a complex and costly undertaking. Properties with PFAS contamination typically require remediation, and finding efficient, cost-effective means of removing PFAS from contaminated water.
"This regulation is an important step that the EPA is taking to address chemicals that cause harm to public health. These new guidelines, together with the nation-wide litigation, will help public entities and individuals that have been harmed by these unsafe chemicals to hold the companies that manufactured them accountable," said Britt Strottman, who leads the public entity practice at Singleton Schreiber.
After these rules become final (likely before the end of 2023), the EPA wants water providers to monitor water supplied to the public, notify the public when PFAS are found in excess to the MCL and reduce the compounds when levels are too high. Litigation for water contamination and other injuries caused by PFAS through Aqueous Film-Forming Foam (AFFF) has been consolidated in a multi-district litigation (MDL) in the United States District Court for the District of South Carolina, presided over by Judge Richard M. Gergel (Case No. MDL 2873). Presently there are over 2,000 cases consolidated in the MDL, compromised of public entities and individual plaintiffs seeking damages for cleanup costs and other harm. More than 40 Defendants have been sued in connection with the AFFF litigation to ensure they will be held accountable for the harm they caused, and the first bellwether trials are expected in June 2023. Talks are also underway for global resolution with key PFAS Defendants, including Dupont and 3M.
"This announcement is a major step forward and should aid state and regional oversight agencies in establishing regulations that are more protective of human health and the environment. By working collaboratively with their local counterparts, these new standards will ensure a cleanup of PFAS and provide for clean and safe drinking water for our communities," said Michael Cassidy, a PFAS geologist and hydrologist for Group Delta (a frequent Singleton Schreiber consultant).
Public entities and private individuals that suspect PFAS contamination and exposure should consult with an attorney and have testing and sampling conducted by an expert to determine contamination levels.

Geraldine Singleton, 77, has worked to feed hundreds on Thanksgiving and Christmas for nearly 40 years.
Now, she's preparing a feast for the new year.
"I just like helping people and giving. That’s just a part of me," Singleton said. "Nobody ever thinks about giving the homeless or the seniors a New Year's dinner. Some of them not able to cook, you know, all that the collard greens and the peas and all that, and so I thought about it and the spirit just led me to do a New Year's dinner this year."

So, I say, 'God, do the most of it.' I say, I look around and say, 'Good Lord, I don’t know how I got all this done.' I say, 'Thank you, Lord, you done it.'"
Meals will be served Saturday afternoon. Those in need of a meal are asked to call Singleton in advance at 803-775-2047 or 757-234-1432.

The South Carolina High School League’s football championship games appear to be switching locations for the 2023 season.
In an email sent earlier this month by S.C. High School League commissioner Jerome Singleton to the state’s athletic directors and superintendents, the league listed “tentative” plans for moving the championship games to South Carolina State’s Oliver Dawson Stadium in Orangeburg.
S.C. State hosted the Class A championships from 2006-09. when the state’s smallest classification had two divisions.
At April’s SCHSL executive committee meeting, Singleton said the University of South Carolina’s Williams-Brice Stadium and S.C. State both showed interest in wanting to host this fall’s state football championships.
“Cost is the biggest factor,” Singleton said of USC’s willingness to host. “They are seeing if they can cut the costs. Then that becomes an option. I will know this within a couple of weeks.”
The State reached out Tuesday to Singleton to seek new comments about the league’s plan to play the games at S.C. State.
All five S.C. High School League football championships were played at Benedict College in 2021 and 2022, and were spread out over three days.
In 2020, games were held at Spring Valley High School and Benedict College with limited fan capacity because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
From 2012-19, the championships were played at two sites, both Williams-Brice Stadium and Benedict. Before 2012, Williams-Brice was the host site for all the games.
Moving to Oliver Dawson Stadium gives the championships a bigger venue than Benedict. According to S.C. State’s website, the stadium’s capacity is 22,000, compared with Benedict’s 13,000 seats.
Football won’t be the only state championships switching locations for this season.
In April, the SCHSL executive committee voted 11-2 in favor of hosting the semifinals (Upper State and Lower State) and state basketball championships at a single location. The email from Singleton indicated that those games are tentatively set for the Florence Center.
The previous two years, the Upper State championships were held at Bob Jones University in Greenville, the Lower State championships at Florence Center and the state championships at USC Aiken (3,500-4,100 capacity).
Florence Center’s capacity is 7,686 for basketball.
“They have put together a great offer,” Singleton said of Florence Center in April. “I don’t know if we have a place more centrally located that we can have the size it has. We need somewhere between six and eight thousand (seats).”
