New Federal Rules Make PFAS Splash Locally

Local leaders in Wausau say they are thankful and ready for new federal rules on PFAS chemicals.

The Biden Administration yesterday unveiled new standards for the so-called forever chemicals, and they are much lower than the standards in Wisconsin. Wausau is building a PFAS treatment center at its water treatment plant, and Mayor Katie Rosenberg says that turned-out to be a great decision. She says there’s no way they could meet the new, lower threshold without a new treatment facility.
