→ Recommendations for EPA groundwater cleanup

Comments Close:

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) ‘is seeking public comment on a draft set of recommendations for cleaning up groundwater contaminated with’ perfluorooctanoic acid and/or perfluorooctane sulfonate. ‘When finalized, the recommendations will provide a starting point for making site-specific cleanup decisions. The guidance is based on the EPA’s current scientific understanding of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances toxicity and is intended to provide clear and consistent guidance for federal cleanup programs, including the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act.’ The information in these recommendations ‘may also be useful for state and tribal cleanup programs, and in carrying out other federal regulatory authorities (e.g., federal facility cleanup programs, approved state Resource Conservation and Recovery Act corrective action programs).’
