In this resolution ECOS calls on federal agencies to conduct research to better understand the impact of, and destruction and disposal options for PFAS; to collaborate with states and provide funding for state work on PFAS; promulgate federal standards and expand regulatory authority to address PFAS; and prohibit the use of PFAS-containing aqueous film-forming foams. ECOS also calls on EPA to implement their 2021 PFAS Strategic Roadmap; approve testing methods and develop health advisories or standards for PFAS in various media; use authorities in the CAA, RCRA, TSCA, and CERCLA to address PFAS; develop safer alternatives to PFAS; and closely coordinate across the federal government and with states to address challenges. Additionally, ECOS calls for an Executive Order on PFAS directing the Department of Defense to fully implement the PFAS provisions in the 2020 NDAA; to provide funding to states to oversee PFAS efforts at DoD sites; comply with RCRA and CERCLA requirements regarding PFAS; cleanup PFAS that is on or has migrated off DoD sites; and communicate openly and regularly with states about PFAS contamination on or resulting from DoD sites.
