DNR Asks Tyco To Expand Sampling Of Fish For PFAS
Fish Tissue Sampling In Private Ponds Shows Elevated PFAS Levels

State environmental regulators are asking a Marinette manufacturer of firefighting foam to expand sampling of fish for chemicals known as PFAS. The move comes after sampling in private ponds near Tyco`s fire training facility showed fish had PFAS concentrations that would trigger restrictions on eating fish.

Tyco, a subsidiary of Johnson Controls International (JCI), sampled three private ponds near its fire technology center in Marinette as part of an ongoing investigation into PFAS contamination stemming from its facility.
