Hearing being held at the Rachel Carson, State Office Building in Harrisburg, PA. Tracy Carlucci, Deputy Director of Delaware Riverkeeper Network, will be speaking on their petition to lower the accepted levels of PFOA/C's to a regulated level of 1-6ppt. The current unregulated standard is 70ppt.
The importance of having residents in the room will be to demonstrate that this is a vital issue for people in the affected region and there is public support for the state to set a standard to mandate its removal from our water.
The DEP will make a report and give their opinion about what the Pennsylvania Environmental Quality Board (PEQB) should do. The petition will be discussed and voted on at the meeting - if they decide to move ahead with the concept, they will approve it.
