VicWater Submission – PFAS NEMP

The Victorian EPA is coordinating feedback on the PFAS (per-and poly-fluoroalkyl substances) National Environmental Management Plan (NEMP). The plan aims to provide governments with a consistent, practical, risk-based framework for the environmental regulation of PFAS-contaminated materials and sites (further details are available here).

In the submission, VicWater summarises relevant work which is underway as part of the recently-created joint EPA and water industry working group which is looking specifically at the management of PFAS in waste streams (those entering and exiting water corporation wastewater treatment plants).
