Earlier today, the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) issued a directive requiring five companies – Solvay, DuPont, Dow DuPont, Chemours and 3M – to provide detailed information on their use of PFAS chemicals and potential modes of discharges such as through wastewater treatment plants, air emissions, and consumer products.  The directive also notifies the companies that the state intends to hold them responsible for PFAS remediation costs.

This is yet another move on the state level in pursuit of regulating PFAS chemicals.  We reported earlier today on new developments in New York and are monitoring the soon-to-be issued investigative orders in California.
