New Law in New Jersey for PFNA Sampling Requirements

New Law in NJ for PFNA Sampling Requirements

New Jersey recently promulgated a law with new PFNA sampling requirements.  Below is a summary of this new law:

NJAC 7:10

 The MCL for the State-regulated perfluorinated compound perfluorononanoic acid (PFNA) shall be 0.013 µg/l.  Monitoring requirements for PFNA shall be those established under the National Regulations at 40 CFR 141.24(f) and at (a)7 below, beginning as set forth at (a)5i below and subject to the condition at (a)5ii below.

i.  All public community water systems using a groundwater source(s) serving a population 10,000 or less and public nontransient noncommunity water systems shall begin monitoring within the first quarter of 2019.  All public community water systems using a surface water source(s) and all public community water systems serving a population greater than 10,000 shall begin monitoring within the first quarter of 2020.

ii.  Notwithstanding the threshold set forth at 40 CFR 141.24(f)(11), the requirement for quarterly monitoring at 40 CFR 141.24(f)(11)(i) shall apply if PFNA is detected at a level exceeding 0.002 µg/l.
