On January 28, Illinois Environmental Protection Agency (Illinois EPA) Director John J. Kim announced the issuance of health advisories for four PFAS chemicals in accordance with Illinois groundwater regulations. Each health advisory contains a general description of the chemical, information on carcinogenicity and potential adverse health effects, and a guidance level.
The chart shown below provides the heath advisory guidance level for each chemical identified.
“This action is part of the Illinois EPA’s statewide PFAS investigation intended to determine the prevalence of PFAS chemicals in our community water supplies. This information is critical to future efforts to set drinking water standards for PFAS compounds,” explains Director Kim. “Illinois EPA will work with affected community water supplies to ensure measures are taken to protect drinking water.”
