EPA Issues Notice for Mandatory PFAS-Related Chromium Questionnaire

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is investigating a potential correlation between chromium and PFAS contamination. Notices have been issued to wastewater facilities engaged in specific chromium-related metal finishing and electroplating activities, mandating their participation in a Chromium Finishing Questionnaire. The completion deadline for this questionnaire is set for March 1. USEPA Chromium Questionnaire Information

According to the notice, the EPA intends to use the information collected from the questionnaire to determine whether current Effluent Limitation Guidelines (ELGs) are appropriate under the Clean Water Act. The information collected from this questionnaire is intended to contribute to a greater understanding of PFAS, their complexity and environmental persistence.  Potential health effects continue to require extensive, ongoing research.

EnSafe is currently supporting several clients with this response and we are available to lend our expertise to support your facility in completing this questionnaire. Submission is mandatory and failing to participate can bring legal action upon the noncompliant facilities. For more information, please contact Chris Rokicki at crokicki@ensafe.com.
