(St. Paul, MN) — Minnesota will be getting federal funding to help detect and treat so-called “forever chemicals” in the water supply. The Biden Administration announced yesterday that it will distribute a billion dollars to every U.S. state and territory to help reduce the hazards caused by chemicals known as PFAS. The Environmental Protection Agency also announced new standards limiting the amount of PFAS that will be allowed in drinking water.
