February 16, 2019 11:10 PM

Highlights: Make a plan to vote Tuesday if you haven't voted already. On Thursday, I am organizing a neighborhood meeting to discuss the next phase of development at Union Corners, see the end of the blog for more details.


The Water Utility reported good news in a press release February 14  "Officials from the City of Madison, Department of National Resources, Wisconsin Air National Guard, Dane County Regional Airport, Department of Military Affairs, and Public Health Madison Dane County met to discuss possible PFAS contamination at two burn pits located on opposite sides of the Truax Air Field. PFAS are a widely used class of chemicals found in firefighting foams, nonstick cookware, food packaging and stain-resistant clothing. ... The Air National Guard met with[...]officials to gather input on a statement of work to investigate the pits for PFAS. The investigation will include soil borings and groundwater sampling. The Guard was also receptive to surface water and sediment sampling at nearby Starkweather Creek. The Guard should know by September 30th whether funding will be made available by the Department of Defense to carry out the investigation. ... Madison Water Utility staff will be drafting a letter to Wisconsin's representatives in Congress requesting that funds be allocated for the development of an action plan for a groundwater study and remediation at the Air National Guard base."


On the same day, the EPA also announced a plan to address PFAS/PFOS  "EPA is moving forward with the maximum contaminant level (MCL) process outlined in the Safe Drinking Water Act for PFOA and PFOS--two of the most well-known and prevalent PFAS chemicals. By the end of this year, EPA will propose a regulatory determination, which is the next step in the Safe Drinking Water Act process for establishing an MCL."
