Public Input, Meetings & Rulemaking Efforts
The DNR continues to seek public input on PFAS investigation, contamination and cleanup issues. There are a variety of ways to give public input and public meetings are held throughout the year. You can also subscribe to various GovDelivery topics to stay informed about PFAS in Wisconsin.
All meetings held by the DNR are published on the DNR Public Hearings and Meetings Calendar. Details about specific sites, stakeholder groups and initiatives are available on dedicated webpages.
The Wisconsin PFAS Action Council (WisPAC), in partnership with other state agencies, hosts public meetings. WisPac is developing and coordinating statewide initiatives to address growing public health and environmental concerns regarding certain PFAS substances. A critical step was the development of a statewide PFAS Action Plan. Meetings are open to the public.
