The purpose of this study is to learn how much fluorinated firefighting foam made with perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) is stored and used in Wisconsin.
Results from this survey will help inform and develop voluntary best-management practices for the use and storage of PFAS-containing foam. Survey data will also be used to generate a cost estimate for a potential PFAS-containing foam collection and disposal effort.
