PFAS External Advisory Group

Gov. Tony Evers declared 2019 the Year of Clean Drinking Water and signed Executive Order #40 in August 2019 to address the issue of PFAS (per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances) in Wisconsin.

The PFAS External Advisory Group is a collaborative forum for the DNR to solicit constructive feedback on PFAS initiatives in Wisconsin.

This group is staffed by the DNR. Members include stakeholders, community members and interested parties from both private and public sectors.

All meetings are open for the public to attend.
