Madison Metropolitan Sewerage District recently shared the results of its Phase 2 sampling and analysis of PFAS, or per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances, in the local wastewater cycle.
Through 2022, the District was engaged in phase 2 of its PFAS sampling plan. This provides preliminary results for PFOA and PFOS, two PFAS compounds.
The District presented the results of its testing for PFAS, or per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances, in the local wastewater cycle today. The results were as expected and fall below proposed standards and existing screening levels.
The District has launched a new website to highlight the District’s work to address PFAS, or per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances, in the wastewater system. The site also provides information and education on PFAS for individuals and businesses.
Manufactured and used for more than 70 years, addressing the worldwide, human-made problem of PFAS requires a complex solutions, holistic and broad-based approach. Learn more about PFAS and past, present and future actions.
