Madison…  Today, the City of Wausau and the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (WDNR) announced that as a result of testing conducted in 2021 and 2022 that all municipal drinking water supply wells in the City tested positive for Perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) below U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Health Advisory Level but above a proposed state WDNR standard.

Representative Snyder reacted to the news:

“Like all, I am concerned about today’s news of the PFAS testing results in the City of Wausau. While the results indicate PFAS levels in Wausau are well below federal Health Advisory Levels, any level of unwanted contamination of water supplies is a serious concern. In the coming days I look forward to holding conversations with City and State officials about the contamination and discuss efforts on state response and PFAS removal.”

Residents with questions regarding PFAS are always welcome to contact my office and additional information can be found:
