OMA environmental legal counsel has provided the membership this memo regarding Gov. Mike DeWine’s recent order to analyze PFAS in Ohio’s drinking water. In the governor’s press release, Ohio EPA Director Laurie Stevenson says the agency is planning to involve stakeholders in its process of establishing a regulatory framework for PFAS.
The OMA will be actively engaged as a key stakeholder in this process to ensure manufacturers are heard. The association will also form a work group to determine how best to represent manufacturers with interests in this area. You can be part of this discussion at the upcoming OMA Environment Committee meeting on Oct. 23. Please notify the OMA’s Rob Brundrett if you are interested. 10/10/2019
