Addressing PFAS: What Wisconsin Engineers Need to Know- 9/28@ Noon
Hosted by: ICS Group and BioLargo
September 12, 2022: Engineers who work with Wisconsin communities affected by per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) understand action is needed to address the problem head on. How do you move forward with changes to state limits, federal limits, and the possibility of PFAS being designated as a hazardous substance?
Our team will discuss the future of PFAS regulations, the looming CERCLA classification of PFAS chemicals, and why it is important to make the best technology choice for your customer.
Webinar will be held on September 28 at Noon. Wisconsin engineers are encouraged to attend.
Stay tuned for a recap!
EPA Proposes Designating Certain PFAS Chemicals as Hazardous Substances Under Superfund to Protect People’s Health
August 26, 2022: The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced a proposal to designate two of the most widely used per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) as hazardous substances under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA), also known as “Superfund.” This rulemaking would increase transparency around releases of these harmful chemicals and help to hold polluters accountable for cleaning up their contamination.
Municipalities and Wastewater Treatment Plants across the country have been tasked with finding effective solutions to removing PFAS from effluent and drinking water. This proposal will impact the decision on what PFAS removal technology your facility chooses.
ICS Group Announces Partnership with Reliant Water Technologies

August 15, 2022 - Wet wells are a notorious burden for municipalities and communities. The build up of fats, oils, and greases that lead to unpleasant smells can cause concern for neighbors and businesses near the wet well. Reliant Water Technologies has created a solution for FOG problems, the Wet Well Wizard.
The Wizard is a unique patent pending aeration tube that is placed into the center of the wet well to aggressively agitate and mix the wet well water. This constant agitation with highly forced air provides oxygen to the water, activating the growth of aerobic microbes in the wastewater, which in turn begin to digest the organic wastes in the water.

Addressing PFAS in Drinking Water with the Drinking Water State Revolving Fund
July 19, 2022: The safety of drinking water is in jeopardy and communities are scrambling to find the appropriate funding to implement effectively remove PFAS. The EPA published a reminder that communities may use the Drinking Water State Revolving Fund (DWSRF) to reduce this public health concern in their drinking water systems.
