Opportunity Area #10: Advance Health and Safety Measures

Opportunity Area #10- Advance Health and Safety Measures

To ensure safe drinking water resources remain in ample supply for the region, both surface water and groundwater supplies must be monitored and protected from potential contamination. OKI convenes the OKI Groundwater Committee on a quarterly basis to share knowledge about groundwater conditions, potential pollution threats, local groundwater management efforts, state and federal requirements, pending legislation and regulations, and best practices for source water protection. 


Policy Recommendations

10.A Strive for eradication or significant reduction of PFAS from the environment and the products we use on a day-to-day basis.

10.B Continuously monitor emerging contaminants to ensure safeguards are in place or planned as needed.
