U.S. Environmental Protection Agency News Release, 25 Apr 2019

U.S. EPA has released draft interim guidance for addressing groundwater contaminated with PFOA and/or PFOS for public review and comment. This action is a key component of the Agency's PFAS Action Plan. The interim guidance will support actions to protect the health of communities impacted by groundwater that contains PFOA and PFOS above the 70 ppt level and is a potential source of drinking water. The recommendations may be revised as new information becomes available. EPA has opened a docket for a 45-day public comment period. The draft guidance describes EPA's interim recommendations for screening levels and preliminary remediation goals to inform final cleanup levels for PFOA and/or PFOS contamination of groundwater that is currently or potentially a source of drinking water.
