PFAS Resources for Communities

The resources on this page will help communities including their leaders and elected officials through the discovery of PFAS. Additional resources will be added as they are available.

Community Response Toolkit

Wisconsin's Community Response to PFAS in Drinking Water is a toolkit intended to provide local governments and residents with information about possible steps to take when responding to PFAS contamination in their community. It includes information about what happens when PFAS is found in drinking water – both from public water systems and private wells. It also offers steps local government and residents may take to address the contamination.

Funding Assistance for infrastructure improvements

Information about funding to assist communities with infrastructure improvements to reduce PFAS in drinking water is available at Bipartisan Infrastructure Law Funding.

Resources about health impacts

The Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) provides information about protecting human health from PFAS. Topics discussed include reducing PFAS exposure during common activities such as gardening, swimming and working around the home.

Resources for communicating about PFAS

Several federal agencies have developed resources for communicating risk to the public. These resources can assist community leaders with developing effective communications about PFAS contamination within the community.
