This article will address two recent events that will cause PFAS litigation to soar after July. If you want to be involved in the largest Plaintiffs litigation in history, you need to attend PFAS Summit III at the Riverside Hotel June 28th -30th.

Our PFAS Summits are the only events that will provide you with all of the tools and information you need to take on these very important cases, many of which are in your local area, no matter where you practice. We are a research and educational organization; we aren’t after your referrals. Our seminars don’t just give you enough limited information to get cases and refer them, we give you everything you need regardless of what you intend to do with cases once you sign them.

Here is what happened in the last few weeks:

The final CERCLA designation for PFAS was entered into the Federal Register on May 8th, which means it goes into effect in July (60 days from publication). It is a done deal. (we expected this but there was some additional very Plaintiff beneficial language we didn’t expect).

The EPA did something else in the last few weeks, when combined with the CERCLA designation is going to make PFAS litigation soar after July.

The EPA lowered the PFAS reportable quantity (RQ) to 1 pound, any lower would be a total ban and only Congress can do this. (we did not see this coming).

Why will this cause PFAS litigation to soar in 2024?

The CERCLA designation imposes CERCLA section 111(g):

Newspaper Notice: CERCLA section 111(g) requires owners and operators of any vessel or facility to provide reasonable notice of any releases of hazardous substances to potential injured parties by publication in local newspapers serving the affected area.

Some PFAS defendants will begin identifying themselves in specific areas where they should be sued in July or face fines and possible criminal prosecution. Many would still try to game this with a higher RQ, but they can’t game a 1-pound RQ.

The lowering of the RQ to 1 pound means a release of one pound requires the public newspaper notice in any area that could be impacted by the release. The 1-pound RQ is also the release quantity that the EPA, based on evidence (useful to our cases in many ways) has determined is enough to cause human injury when released into the environment (water, air or soil).

If you think PFAS releases are no longer common, you would be wrong!

Also, in the last month, the EPA released PFAS Tri Data (PFAS) releases, showing that over 1 million pounds of PFAS was released into the environment in 2022 (up 345,000 pounds from 2020) and this is from PFAS waste alone ( I was shocked by this). 2023 data won’t be published until later this year, but no decrease is expected.

The Tri Data shows some singe facilities still releasing over 50,000 pounds of PFAS and many over 1,000 pounds. That is more than 1 pound, if you are math challenged. Only one facility in the report released less than 1 pound.

The combination of CERCLA section 111(g) (which we expected) and the one-pound RG (which we didn’t expect) occurring in the same month will cause PFAS litigation to soar later this year.

Bottom line: You are going to start seeing a massive number of these notices published in newspapers around the country beginning in July, you need to know how to find them and what to do (and what not to do) when you see one.

We are going to cover all of the recent developments in PFAS Summit III and you can’t afford to miss this one. Things are getting real, fast and you no longer have time to waste. You are going to be part of the first Trillion-dollar litigation with 300,000 potential defendants, in history or not, it is time to decide or be left on the “ also mentioned” side of
