Betsy Southerland, EPN member and former EPA Director, Office of Science and Technology in the Office of Water, is quoted in this article about EPA’s draft PFAS guidance, which does not include a trigger for federal regulators to respond immediately to sites contaminated with dangerously high levels of the chemicals, as is typically included in such documents and was part of the draft guidance sent to the White House last summer for interagency review.
