Title:A look into Wisconsin’s PFAS groundwater standard recommendations
Author(s):Dehnert, Gavin
Subject(s):per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances
Abstract:Presented by: Gavin Dehnert – Postdoctoral Fellow at Wisconsin Department of Health Services, Co-authors: Sarah Yang, Roy Irving Abstract: The goal of Wisconsin groundwater and drinking water program (GDWP) is to protect public health by ensuring all Wisconsinites have access to safe drinking water. In a process laid out in State Statue, GDWP develops groundwater standards that protect water from substances that affect human health or impact the water’s taste, color, or odor. GDWP follows a three step process: gather relevant scientific information, select the appropriate standard, and document findings and recommendations. Recently, GDWP released Cycle 11 groundwater standard recommendations. This cycle included 22 substances including 6 pesticides and 16 per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS). As detections of PFAS and pesticides increase in Wisconsin groundwater, these groundwater standards can protect our water from substances that can affect human health.
