Action Alert: Ask Legislators to Help Identify Toxic Chemicals in Our Drinking Water
Late last week, a Senate Committee took a step towards safer drinking water with the introduction and passage of Senate Concurrent Resolution 46.
Contact members of the committee today! Ask them to help identify toxic chemicals in our drinking water by supporting SCR 46.
While CSR 46 doesn’t include the all the provisions outlined in the Clean Drinking Water Act of 2020, it’s an important first step towards protecting our water and health from toxic PFAS which are known to cause cancer and other serious ailments.
The Resolution requires the WVDEP and DHHR to sample raw, or untreated, water supplies at locations across the state for the presence of PFAS. The data from the study will help regulatory agencies better protect public health and ensure the water we drink is safe.
ACT NOW: Tell members of the House Health & Human Resources Committee to help make our drinking water safer by supporting SCR 46.
