WE DID IT!

Bill signed to compel NHDES to take action when EPA fails us.

“I think the state is starting to move aggressively on protecting the public from the dangers of PFAS,” Cushing said. “The lawsuit the state filed against polluters, the fact DES adopted some of the strictest standards for PFAS in the country, just shows public opinion is with protecting our drinking water.” ~ New Hampshire Safe Water Alliance Co-Founder, NH House Representative Renny Cushing, D-Hampton


Demand Action!

SIGN PETITION calling on NH DHHS and Governor Sununu for a REAL Investigation: NH lost another young person to rhabdomyosarcoma. The face of cancer is hard to see but it's a reality in NH. He was in his mid 20s. This person lived in an area where there is also PFAS contaminated water like in the 5-town area of the seacoast where we have a rhabdomyosarcoma cancer cluster. We have lost people young and old to this devastating disease. There is no known connection to any environmental issue right now.

We must do whatever we can to find the cause. Please join us by signing this petition to request a full inquiry into cancer in our state.

 
 
 

What are PFAS Toxins?

PFAS are a group of artificial chemicals found in various everyday products including but not limited to: food packaging, stain removers, and nonstick and water repellent fabrics. They are also used commonly in firefighting foam at airports. Exposure to certain PFAS chemicals can lead to numerous health effects including cancer. PFAS contaminates groundwater near airports and factories using PFAS chemicals.
