How to share feedback on the CAP

Written comments

We encourage you to give your input via our online comment form, but you can also email comments to ChemActionPlans@ecy.wa.gov or mail them to Irina Makarow, Department of Ecology, P.O. Box 47600, Olympia, WA 98504-7600.

Public comment meetings

You can also provide comments during public comment meetings this November. Register to attend a public comment meeting on the PFAS CAP website. Please note that the public comment portion of the webinars will be recorded and may be subject to public disclosure.

How we’ll use your feedback

The PFAS CAP comprehensively assesses the sources, uses, and releases of PFAS in Washington state and recommends actions to reduce human and environmental exposure. Your input will help us finalize our recommendations before publishing the Final CAP in 2021.
