Statement on EPA's updated interim health advisories
We are aware of the updated interim health advisories for four per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) announced June 15, by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
While these new health-based guidelines are not enforceable, the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) and Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) are evaluating the EPA’s science in the development of their guidance and have indicated they will be making recommendations in the months ahead on any changes to state standards, guidelines, and or health advisories.
Woodbury’s drinking water continues to meet state standards and guidelines for PFAS.
