The Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS) Workgroup is a new stakeholder workgroup organized by the department to tackle issues relating to PFAS. The department's Water Protection Program began this workgroup in response to stakeholder concerns regarding this emerging contaminant. For general information about PFAS and on-going actions the department and EPA are taking to address concerns, visit Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS).
The membership for this workgroup is made up of department team members and Missouri experts in the fields of wastewater, stormwater, drinking water, chemistry, analytical methods and environmental advocacy. The workgroup will be mainly dedicated to developing policies and tools regarding PFAS. This webpage will continue to develop as the workgroup progresses.
The first workgroup meeting is scheduled below. Agenda items may include draft permit language, voluntary sampling development and risk management communication.
