Local residents or anyone wanting to submit written comments for a hearing on C8 planned in Washington, D.C., in June have until May 16 to submit their information.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has called a public meeting to gather information about the controversial chemical used in DuPont's manufacturing of Teflon and other products. The company calls it C8; scientists call it by its official designation, PFOA. The outcome of the June 6 hearing could be further regulation of the chemical.
