WASHINGTON – Following an announcement from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for Tucson Water to receive an investment of $30 million in Bipartisan Infrastructure Law funding to protect Tucson area residents from PFAS in their drinking water, Rep. Raúl M. Grijalva (AZ-07) issued the following statement:
“This investment from the Biden administration is transformative and will move forward much-needed infrastructure that will help ensure safe drinking water for the City of Tucson. As a lifelong resident of the Tucson southside, I’m all too familiar with toxic chemicals that polluted our community’s drinking water and the adverse health impacts that followed,” said Rep. Grijalva. “I was proud to support the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law as a down payment to address historic inequities and will continue to fight for policies that will guarantee clean drinking water and a healthy environment for future generations.”
