Sea Grant-funded research shows that large rivers can be an important source of PFAS to lakes, even if their PFAS concentrations are low.
Twelve new research projects will build Great Lakes understanding, leading to science-based management and policy decisions.
Christina Remucal is investigating the fate of PFAS in Green Bay and Lake Michigan sediments and water for two years through a Wisconsin Sea Grant project. She also used her expertise to help craft the recent PFAS Action Plan for the state.
Prarthana Shankar is the latest EPA Fellow. She’s working to understand the risks that per- and polyfluorinated alkyl substances pose to freshwater fish and ecosystems.
