DNR Board Expected to Vote On WI PFAS Scope Statements

The Wisconsin Natural Resources Board (DNR) is expected to vote today on scope statements to address PFAS chemicals. The proposed rules would set some of the strictest standards in the country for PFOA and PFOS in groundwater

.

Based on initial compliance cost estimates prepared by the DNR last September, industry, local governments and ultimately the taxpayer stand to incur millions of dollars in costs related to PFAS. In order to comply with drinking water standards, DNR estimates that a municipal wastewater treatment facility could be facing costs up to $25 million per facility.
MWFPA is a member of the Wisconsin Water Quality Coalition, a group of non-profit organizations, industry partners, and trade associations, advocating for PFAS regulation that is based on sound science and that properly balances possible health impacts with protecting the future of Wisconsin’s economy.
