Senate Bill 0724, Section 1


The act amends Sections 46-32-2 and 46-32-3 of Chapter 46-32 of the Rhode Island General Laws. It changes the requirement for public water systems to provide potable water through other means if they test above 20ppt for PFAS contamination (see 2022 RI S2298 for the original version). Instead, the Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management will enter into a consent agreement with the water system to rectify the amount of PFAS in drinking water to at or below the interim standard of 20ppt.
