PFAS Overview

In the absence of national regulatory standards some States have developed regulatory and guidance advisory and cleanup levels for PFCs. In 2014-2015, the Remediation and Reuse Focus Group requested information from States in order to document current State regulations and guidance for PFCs, and to gather and compile State resources that may assist other States that may soon develop their own. Information provided by States and additional research conducted by the Focus Group on guidance and/or regulatory cleanup levels for PFOS and/or PFOA are provided here:
