REQUEST FOR PUBLIC INPUT
ON THE DRAFT INTERIM SPECIFIC GROUND WATER QUALITY CRITERION
AND PRACTICAL QUANTITATION LEVEL FOR PERFLUORONONANOIC ACID (PFNA)
MARCH 14, 2014

The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (Department) has developed and is requesting public input for a draft Interim Specific Ground Water Quality Criterion (ISGWQC) and analytical draft interim practical quantitation limit (PQL) for Perfluorononanoic Acid (PFNA, CAS # 375-95-1).

The following draft documents have been posted to this website:

Summary of the Basis for a Draft Interim Specific Ground Water Quality Criterion for Perfluorononanoic Acid (PFNA, C9)

Draft Interim Practical Quantitation Level (PQL) determination to support Interim Specific Ground Water Quality Criterion development for Perfluorononanoic Acid (PFNA)

Draft list of references used for development of the ISGWQC

Please note that the draft, full Technical Support Document that will contain details on the basis and background for the ISGWQC and additional references will be posted by March 21 on this website. In addition, the Department will post specific questions concerning these documents for public comment. Comments on these documents are requested no later than 5 pm, Monday April 21, or 30 days after the posting of the full Technical Support Document, whichever is later.


Regulatory Background: The Interim Specific Ground Water Quality Standard process is initiated when the Site Remediation program, or other regulatory program within the Department, identifies the need for a Ground Water Quality Standard (GWQS) for a contaminant that is not included in the Ground Water Quality Standards (N.J.A.C. 7:9 Appendix Table 1). The higher of the interim PQL and the interim criterion is the numerical standard to be applied in Class II-A aquifers (N.J.A.C. 7:9C-1.9(c)).The Site Remediation Program deems the Interim Specific Ground Water Quality Standards to be ground water remediation standards pursuant to the Remediation Standards at N.J.A.C. 7:26D-2.2(a)1. See: http://www.nj.gov/dep/wms/bwqsa/gwqs.htm for additional information on GWQS.
