The Washington Departments of Ecology and Health invite the advisory committee, the public, and all interested stakeholders to review and share comments on the Draft Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS) Chemical Action Plan (CAP).

We want to hear from you!

Review the Draft Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS) Chemical Action Plan (CAP). The 60-day comment period is open from Oct. 7, 2020 through Dec. 7, 2020. We welcome your feedback, data, or other information to help us ensure the CAP recommendations prioritize the most important actions related to reducing PFAS exposures.

Backgound

PFAS are a group of synthetic chemicals used in consumer products and industrial applications. Nearly everyone is exposed to PFAS, and some forms are linked to health problems in people and adverse impacts to wildlife. 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.
