Online Listening Session July 15
MADISON, Wis. – The Department of Natural Resources is holding online listening sessions on Wednesday, July 15 to seek public input on PFAS contamination in Marinette, Peshtigo and surrounding communities. The meeting is the ninth in a series of 11 meetings the DNR will host for area residents.
Representatives from the DNR and the Department of Health Services will be on hand from Noon-2 p.m., and again from 6-7:30 p.m., to provide a brief overview, answer questions and hear concerns from community members regarding PFAS investigation, cleanup and any health-related issues.
These contaminants have made their way into the environment through accidental spills of PFAS-containing materials, discharges of PFAS-containing wastewater to treatment plants and certain types of firefighting foams.
The online sessions will be conducted via Zoom web and video conferencing. Participants may join either session via the preceding link, or by dialing 312-626-6799 and using this meeting ID number: 938 1582 3633. Pre-registration is not required.
