US EPA Tackles PFAS Issues at Community Engagement Event

Sign up for our newsletter, The Standard!



Last evening, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) held a per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) community engagement event at Hatboro-Horsham High School in Eastern Pennsylvania. The event is part of a nationwide effort to allow US EPA to hear directly from local communities, states, and other stakeholders on how to best help states and communities facing this issue. The location was chosen due to its immediate proximity to the former Willow Grove Naval Air Station given the impact that Station has had on local drinking water supplies. 

In attendance to hear the latest positions directly from leaders in federal, state and local legislative and regulatory agencies, were Environmental Standards’ Erin Rodgers and Kevin Renninger. Environmental Standards has several subject-matter experts in PFAS analytical chemistry to assist clients in this emerging class of contaminants. If you would like to learn more about the details of the community engagement or our PFAS expertise, please contact them at erodgers@envstd.com or krenninger@envstd.com.
