A New Era of Water Safety: Culligan of Greater Kansas City Responds to Groundbreaking PFAS Regulations

In an unprecedented move, the Biden-Harris Administration has established the first-ever national drinking water standards aimed at mitigating the risks posed by per-and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS). Commonly known as “forever chemicals” due to their enduring presence in the environment, PFAS compounds have been linked to a spectrum of severe health issues including various cancers, developmental problems in children, and significant damage to the liver and heart. 

The new regulations, as laid out by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), aim to significantly cut down PFAS exposure, potentially preventing thousands of fatalities and reducing the incidence of serious illnesses for about 100 million Americans.

Understanding the Risks of PFAS

PFAS pollution has been a longstanding concern across the United States, especially in communities where water sources have been heavily contaminated. The EPA’s decisive regulation is a critical part of its extensive PFAS Strategic Roadmap, intending to address these harmful chemicals comprehensively. Moreover, backed by nearly $1 billion in funding from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, these efforts are set to enhance PFAS testing and treatment in public water systems and provide necessary support for private well owners.

Our team is dedicated to staying ahead in the field, continuously updating our technology and methods to ensure the highest standard of water purification.

In-Depth Look at Our Technologies

Granular Activated Carbon: Effective in adsorbing organic compounds, including PFAS, this method serves as a first line of defense in water purification.

Reverse Osmosis: Utilizing a semi-permeable membrane, reverse osmosis systems push water through under pressure, efficiently reducing PFAS alongside other contaminants.

Ion Exchange: This technology uses resins to exchange ions in the water for ions fixed to a polymer matrix, providing another robust layer of contaminant removal.

Our involvement extends beyond individual homes, reaching community initiatives and educational programs to raise awareness about water safety and PFAS.

Sustainability and Future Outlook

Our commitment to environmental sustainability is unwavering. By reducing the use of single-use plastics and enhancing water treatment efficiency, we ensure a healthier planet for future generations. These efforts align with national objectives like the Biden Administration’s Cancer Moonshot initiative, which seeks to reduce cancer rates by addressing environmental factors, including PFAS exposure.
