Today, the Environmental Protection Agency unveiled a PFOS/PFOA Action Plan in Fountain, CO. Congressman Doug Lamborn (CO-05), Ranking Member of the Readiness Subcommittee on HASC issued the following statement:
"I'm encouraged by the EPA's Action Plan to combat the PFOS/PFOA issue. I know our community is happy to see the EPA unveil the first national action plan in our home town of Fountain, Colorado. Transparent communication has been critical to working towards a successful solution. Throughout this entire process, I've petitioned the EPA to ensure our region has safe drinking water and better public health based on sound science. I've been happy to coordinate between local and federal authorities, including many calls, letters, meetings, and round table discussions. I intend to keep pushing the EPA and the Department of Defense to bring this job to completion. Our communities deserve nothing less."
