“….review draft EPA documents that are being developed to support EPA’s National Primary Drinking Water Rulemaking for per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS). These draft documents will describe EPA’s prepared analyses of health effects data that will inform the derivation of proposed Maximum Contaminant Level Goals for perfluorooctanesulfonic acid (PFOS) and perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA).  Additionally, the documents will include elements from EPA’s assessment of the health risk reduction benefits of potential reductions in drinking water concentrations of PFOA and PFOS for targeted health endpoints.  The documents will also include a framework for estimating health risks associated with PFAS mixtures.”

Nominations are due by July 21, 2021.  The enclosed Federal Register notice includes additional details on the types of expertise that is being sought for the PFAS panel and how to submit nominations.
