Water companies act on chemical concerns as rulemaking process drags on
from NJ Spotlight
Some New Jersey water companies aren't waiting for scientists and state officials to decide whether to regulate certain chemicals in drinking water, and are taking their own steps to ensure that customers' water won't damage their health, a senior water company official told a state advisory panel. Anthony Matarazzo of New Jersey American Water told the Drinking Water Quality Institute that companies like his have already installed the technology to remove chemicals like PFNA (perfluorononanoic acid) in many locations even though the Department of Environmental Protection hasn't yet decided whether to adopt a Maximum Contaminant Limit (MCL) for the chemical.
