One of our nation’s most compelling and urgent toxic tort cases continues to affect local communities. Over 100,000 citizens in Montgomery and Bucks counties remain unable to drink their own water due to contamination from PFAS, a toxic chemical used in firefighting foams. Local governments have had to seek water from outside sources, often using interconnections to water supplies free of PFAS contamination. Similar lawsuits in Pennsylvania and around the country are consolidated in a multidistrict litigation (MDL) in the U.S. District Court for the District of South Carolina. Despite these lawsuits and the swift action by other states to combat this water crisis, our own Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection seems paralyzed and unable to protect the commonwealth’s water supply. As toxic torts go, this may be one of the most complex and have the farthest-reaching impact as it will affect the drinking water of millions of Americans.
