The Latest On: Environmental Protection Agency
Amanda Goodin, Attorney, Northwest Office, Earthjustice: “These cleanups are enormously expensive, and companies basically never set aside enough money to fully remediate a site.”
Jonathan Kalmuss-Katz, Attorney, Toxic Exposure & Health Program, Earthjustice: "The EPA has broad authority under the Clean Water Act, Safe Drinking Water Act, Clean Air Act and other laws to aggressively regulate PFAS, and it will be important for this administration to bring all of that authority to bear on this problem."
Shannon Fisk, Managing Attorney, Coal Program, Earthjustice: "The ability of front-line communities to fully pursue the rights and protections promised by the federal Clean Air Act is critical to advancing environmental justice, and EPA’s decision enables us to now focus fully on ensuring that the agreement with DTE brings meaningful relief to the River Rouge, Ecorse and 48217 communities.”
Patti Goldman, Managing Attorney, Northwest Office, Earthjustice: "I believe at some point we will start having these chemicals out of our food supply."
