PFOA, PFOS and Other PFASs

PFAS Community Engagement

Throughout the summer, EPA conducted events with communities impacted by PFAS. For each engagement, EPA coordinated closely with the states and local communities to plan and select each of the PFAS Community Engagement events.

EPA also engaged with tribal representatives at the Tribal Lands and Environment Forum in Spokane, Washington, on August 15.

By visiting impacted communities, EPA heard directly from the public on how to best help states and communities facing this issue. Those that were unable to attend a Community Engagement had the opportunity to submit written comments in the public docket, found at Docket ID No. EPA-OW-2018-0270. The docket is now closed.  Using information from the National Leadership Summit, community engagements, and public input provided by the docket, EPA developed a PFAS Action Plan.
