The DEC Contaminated Sites Program has posted an Interim Technical Memorandum on its Guidance and Forms web page, listed under the category of “Screening and Establishing Cleanup Levels”, that compares DEC cleanup levels for Perfluorooctane Sulfonate (PFOS) and Perfluorooctonoic Acid (PFOA) to EPA’s Health Advisory Levels. The document provides DEC cleanup levels for soil and groundwater as well as a general understanding of EPA lifetime health advisory levels and how it differs from the groundwater cleanup levels.
If you have questions regarding this memorandum, please contact Ted Wu, ted.wu@alaska.gov, (907) 451-2269.
