Review of PFAS Effects by the Secretaries’ Science Board

Science Advisory Board Gathers to Discuss Exposure Assessments and Human Health Risks for PFAS Compounds and 1,4-Dioxane in Drinking Water

State officials will gather for a meeting at the Archdale Building in Raleigh on Wednesday to seek guidance from a panel of experts on the Secretaries’ Science Advisory Board. The board, made up of experts in toxicology, public health, ecology, engineering, and related fields, will compare exposure assessments from the CDC and EPA on PFAS compounds.

Exposure assessments are used to determine if a community has been exposed to a certain substance in their environment by measuring the amount, frequency, and duration of exposure. The meeting will also address recent peer-reviewed studies on PFMOAA, a unique PFAS found in North Carolina. Additionally, the board will discuss human health risk data related to 1,4-Dioxane in drinking water.

The agenda for the meeting includes updates on a PFAS rulemaking package and past meeting recordings can be accessed through the website for more information about the board and its work. The meeting is open for both in-person attendance or online listening through WebEx using the provided webinar number and password.
