PFAS Action Team to Provide Updates on Upcoming Sampling Plan, Solicit Resident Feedback

The Wolf Administration’s PFAS Action Team announced the next public meeting of the Action Team will take place on Tuesday, Feb. 12, 2019, from 6:15-9:00 PM at the Upper Dublin High School. Governor Wolf formed the Action Team in September 2018 to address perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) contaminants across the commonwealth and protect Pennsylvania residents.

“At this meeting we will hear updates from DEP on a sampling plan to identify potentially contaminated drinking water sources and from the Department of Health on the pilot study for blood levels,” said DEP Secretary Patrick McDonnell.

Representatives from local governments and utilities will also present on the challenges of managing PFAS chemicals, as well as working with the commonwealth and the federal government to address cleanup.

The meeting will include an opportunity for members of the public to provide comment in person. Commenters are asked to present no more than three minutes of remarks. Residents unable to attend or who would like to submit remarks in writing can use DEP’s eComment system.
