PFAS Chemical Action Plan

The Draft Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS) Chemical Action Plan (CAP) identifies the potential health and environmental effects of PFAS chemicals, and recommends strategies to reduce or eliminate those impacts in Washington. Ecology and Health worked with representatives from industry, tribal nations, local governments, environmental groups, and academia to develop the plan.
