Public Comment and Informational Meeting

Draft Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances Chemical Action Plan

Nov. 18, 2020, 6 p.m., Online webinar

Join the Washington Departments of Ecology and Health for a public comment meeting on the Draft Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS) Chemical Action Plan (CAP).

Share feedback with us

We invite the public, business and industry representatives, non-governmental organizations, local governments, state agencies, tribal nations, and all others interested to provide comments on the Draft PFAS CAP after a brief presentation on the CAP development process.

CAPs are advisory in nature, so the plan does not create new regulations or restrictions. Ecology is seeking feedback specifically on the recommendations outlined in the CAP. They are:

  1. Ensure drinking water is safe.
  2. Manage environmental PFAS contamination.
  3. Reduce PFAS in products.
  4. Understand and manage PFAS in waste.

Background

Under Washington Administrative Code 173-333, the departments of Ecology and Health developed the Draft PFAS CAP to identify the potential health and environmental impacts of PFAS and to recommend actions to reduce or eliminate those impacts in Washington. Ecology and Health invite the advisory committee, the public, and all interested stakeholders to review and share comments on the Draft PFAS CAP.
