On February 27, the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (Ohio EPA) announced it had begun collecting samples from the state’s 1,500 public water systems to test for certain PFAS in drinking water. The testing, conducted as part of the statewide PFAS Action Plan, will help the state implement preventative and long-term measures to reduce PFAS-related risks.
Ohio EPA will post the testing results to its new interactive dashboard and map, which consists of aggregate PFAS sampling information and individual public water system testing results as loaded by the agency. Sampling is anticipated to be completed by the end of 2020.
