Wisconsin moving forward on PFAS
Wisconsin is among the growing number of states across the US addressing emerging contaminants like per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) by developing regulations designed to protect human health and the environment.
To better inform their members about PFAS in Wisconsin, the Federation of Environmental Technologists (FET), an organization supporting environmental professionals throughout Wisconsin, recently featured an article by OBG, Part of Ramboll's Jeff Ramey, an expert on emerging contaminants and their effect on the environment, in the organization's March 2019 newsletter.
In this article, Jeff answers five important questions about PFAS, including:
- What are PFAS, and what are the challenges?
- What is Wisconsin doing about PFAS?
- What are other states doing about PFAS?
- What is the US EPA doing about PFAS?
- What does this mean for FET’s members?
About Jeff Ramey: Jeff is an analytical chemist with more than 15 years of experience and a member of OBG, Part of Ramboll’s emerging contaminants team. He regularly interfaces with industry work groups on the development of PFAS guidance and best practices.
Since publishing this article for FET, additional developments have been made with PFAS in Wisconsin and other states. To lean more, contact Jeff Ramey at Jeff.Ramey@obg.com.
