The New England Community Engagement event consisted of two sessions - a public listening session and PFAS working session - to hear from the public; provide tools to assist states, tribes, and local communities in addressing challenges with PFAS in the environment; and understand ways EPA can best support the work that's being done at the state, local, and tribal level.
