One of the most closely watched environmental topics of the last year – the regulation of PFAS, a man-made chemical first formulated over 70 years ago but an urgent concern today for its effect on groundwater and drinking water supplies – will be among the important topics addressed at this year's Annual State Bar of Wisconsin Environmental Law Update.
Ned Witte will provide a comprehensive overview of these emerging contaminants. This will include an update on the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources’ request in July to over 120 municipalities to test for PFAS in the wastewater streams they receive and discharge, and an update on the rules proposed in early September by WDNR to create groundwater, surface water and drinking water standards.
Jess Kramer (Senior Counsel to David Ross, the U.S. EPA Assistant Administrator of EPA's Office of Water) will share insights on federal actions to address PFAS, including establishing a federal Maximum Contaminant Level (drinking water limit) for PFAS, identifying PFAS as a Superfund hazardous substance, and interactions with states including Wisconsin.
