Call For Abstracts

PFAS continues to be a challenge for municipalities and water authorities in Pennsylvania. The Pennsylvania Water Environment Association (PWEA), the Pennsylvania Section of the American Water Works Association (PA-AWWA), and the Pennsylvania Municipal Authorities Association (PMAA) recognize the important role of cooperation in today’s regulatory and economic environment to meet water quality goals better, cheaper, and faster and are soliciting abstracts to share your successes.

Earlier this year Pennsylvania Infrastructure Investment Authority (PENNVEST) approved a 100% grant funding program designed specifically to assist communities in the remediation of PFAS and elimination of PFAS in water sources and systems. Additionally, last month EPA invited states and territories to apply for $1 billion – the first of $5 billion funding – to address PFAS and other emerging contaminants in drinking water, specifically in small or disadvantaged communities.

To reach our target audience for the Specialty Conference, abstracts are being requested by Friday, September 2, 2022 in the following PFAS categories:

  • Challenges

  • Infrastructure

  • Funding

Abstracts will be accepted only by email and in WORD format.  Send completed abstract submission form to: Cindy Rock.  Abstract submission deadline is Friday, September 2, 2022.
