Details 

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) will host the second meeting of the PFAS External Advisory Group from 1-3 p.m. on Tuesday, May 4, 2021.

Items on the agenda include an overview of the Green Tier program, updates on DNR PFAS initiatives including proposed state and federal PFAS legislation.

PFAS (per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances) are a group of human-made chemicals used for decades in various products, including non-stick cookware, fast food wrappers, stain-resistant sprays and some types of firefighting foams. These contaminants stay in the environment and human body for extended periods of time. Recent findings indicate that exposure to certain PFAS may have harmful health effects in people.

The public is invited to attend and may offer questions and comments at the meeting. Questions may also be submitted in advance to DNRPFASInquiries@wisconsin.gov.

More information on this meeting can be found on the DNR’s PFAS External Advisory Group webpage.
