ACMUA Prepares for Legal Action Relating to PFAS/PFOS

Posted on: February 13th, 2019 by eric

The Atlantic City MUA has engaged DeCotiis Fitzpatrick to assess the liability of the FAA Technical Center for contamination of ACMUA’s production well with PFAS and PFOS chemicals.

ACMUA has also engaged Sher Edling to litigate against manufacturers.

This action comes as ACMUA faces costs of $20 million to comply with new NJDEP regulations governing PFAS/PFOS. The ACMUA last week issued a press release discussing the reasons the wells were located at the FAA site and detailing the steps ACMUA will have to take to treat and continue to remove the chemicals from its water.
