After years of grassroots lobbying, Wisconsin will finally adopt regulatory standards governing perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances, better known as PFAS. On June 13, Wisconsin Joint Committee for Review of Administrative Rules Chair, Republican Steve Nass, announced the Committee would offer no objection to the DNR’s proposed rules to limit common PFAS chemicals in drinking water to no more than 70 parts per trillion. Surface water standards would range from 8 parts per trillion to 95 parts per trillion. Sounds good, but meanwhile the federal Environmental Protection Agency has announced a health advisory that any concentration of PFAS chemicals above 0.004 parts per trillion can pose a serious health risk. In other words, Wisconsin’s new standards allow 17,000 times more PFAS pollution than what the EPA currently thinks is safe. Clean Wisconsin Program Director Scott Laeser thinks there’s more work to do.
