Water Quality

Water Quality

The culmination of State Senator Shannon Chandley’s work to address local water quality issues came on July 23rd, 2020 when Governor Sununu signed into law HB 1264, a bill that sets some of the nation’s toughest drinking water standards for harmful PFAS chemicals.

In 2018, Senator Chandley promised to spearhead efforts to hold local polluters responsible, to provide clean drinking water for impacted families, to increase testing and replacement of contaminated wells, to continue monitoring for health affects and to provide comprehensive environmental monitoring.

In addition to HB 1264, Senator Chandley helped pass SB 287 and SB 496, legislation that further ensures safe local drinking water.
