North Carolina Science Advisory Board to Consider Evidence on PFAS

The North Carolina Secretaries’ Science Advisory Board is scheduled to meet Dec. 5 to provide state officials with feedback on two PFAS science issues. The first involves a recommendation regarding the use of existing literature to derive reference doses for perfluoro-2-methoxyaacetic acid (PFMOAA), which was recently detected as the most prevalent PFAS in the Cape Fear River.

The board is also scheduled to provide feedback to the North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality on bioaccumulation factors contained in EPA’s draft aquatic life criteria for perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluorooctanoic sulfonate (PFOS), and the potential for using the factors in North Carolina.
