I wrote a post about the drinking water back in 2016 .  Now it looks like the drinking water is back in the news again . I was reading this article in the Bucks County Courier Times . I was also sent the same artlcle from the Suburban Realtor Alliance . Looks like the Federal Goverment has ruled on this .Realtors® are encouraged to reach out to specific municipalities for more information regarding water safety in areas where they do business. Here  is a copy of the article with a link to my original articles that I posted here on Active Rain in 2016  I wrote two posts in 2016

 

Federal court rules residents can sue for PFAS claims
A federal appeals court in Philadelphia ruled that Bucks and Montgomery County residents can proceed with claims over water contamination near area military bases. The ruling reverses two years’ work of legal setbacks for residents against what had seemed to be a watertight immunity defense for the U.S. Navy. Two similar cases each requested the Navy provide medical monitoring for the plaintiffs, who had allegedly been exposed to toxic perfluorinated chemicals (PFAS) in their drinking water. The second case also sought a large-scale healthy study that would assess whether the chemicals caused unusual amounts of illness in the affected communities. The justices hearing the recent appeal determined that residents can pursue funding for medical monitoring even though the Superfund law says the military has full control over the cleanup process and cannot be sued to change course. However, since the federal court has formal mechanisms in place to conduct a health study, residents cannot sue to force the government to take that action. The Bucks County Courier Times and The Intelligencer have made all of the reporting about the water contamination issue available on their websites as a public resource — http://www.buckscountycouriertimes.com/news/horsham-pfos and http://www.theintell.com/news/horsham-pfos. Maps of the contaminated areas have been added to those sites, along with recent news articles and efforts by area congressmen to fund testing and cleanup. Realtors® are encouraged to reach out to specific municipalities for more information regarding water safety in areas where they do business.
