It’s another chance for the public to air concerns and ask questions about the local PFAS contamination issue and related remediation efforts. The Wisocnsin DNR will hold online listening sessions tomorrow to seek public input on PFAS contamination in Marinette, Peshtigo and surrounding communities- the 11th in a series of 13 such meetings. The contaminants have made their way into the environment through spills of PFAS-containing materials, discharges of PFAS-containing wastewater to treatment plants and certain types of firefighting foam and have contributed to a local contamination crisis which is being called the largest and most complex in the state’s history. In addition to routine updates on the status of the PFAS investigations in the community, tomorrow’s meeting will include an update on potable well sampling in the Expanded Site Investigation Area, a presentation on the groundwater quality standard recommendations for certain PFAS compounds, and an update on recent fish tissue sampling and the next steps for sampling additional area water bodies. The sessions will take place online via Zoom from noon until 2 p.m. and from 6 to 7:30 p.m. More information can be found on the Marinette and Peshtigo PFAS Contamination page on the DNR’s website.
