MUSCATINE, Iowa–On Tuesday, June 28, the League of Women Voters will host speakers on water quality and polyfluoroalkyl substances, or PFAS, found in our water.  The meeting will be held at Musser Public Library at 6:30 – 7:30 in the third floor meeting room. The public is invited to attend.

Speakers include Corey McCoid, supervisor of the Department of Natural Resources Water Supply Operations; Eric Furnas, Muscatine County Zoning administrator; and a representative from Muscatine Power and Water, water division.

At the June 28 meeting, the audience can expect to learn more about PFAS, who is at-risk, how people can reduce their exposure to PFAS, possible solutions, and more.  Also included will be information about private well testing, permitting waste and septic systems, and grants available to cap wells.

Water quality is a study issue of the League of Women Voters of Iowa.  The League of Women Voters of Muscatine County (LWVMC) is a member of the Upper Mississippi River Region – Inter League Organization which includes Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, and Iowa. There are concerns about surface and ground water in the Upper Mississippi Basin, both for the environment and human health. The League of Women Voters is nonpartisan and issue oriented. Positions on issues are reached through study and consensus.
