Limitations on Products Containing Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons Amendment Act of 2018

Friday, March 29, 2019

This act expands the District’s ban on coal tar pavement sealants to include products containing ethylene cracker residue and products with high concentrations of polcyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs). High-PAH products are defined as sealants containing more than 0.1% PAHs by weight. The act also allows the Mayor to issue a list of compliant products deemed low-PAH.
