While SCR 46 doesn’t include the all the provisions outlined in the Clean Drinking Water Act of 2020, it is 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: Ask your delegates to help make our drinking water safer by supporting SCR 46.
