PFAS Issues Affecting Water & Wastewater Authorities
PFAS have continued to be a major topic for those involved in both the drinking water and wastewater industries. Many PMAA members have attended our past seminars/webinars on this ever-developing area of law and science, and have a basic understanding of the issues surrounding PFAS.
This session will present a short, basic overview of PFAS-related issues, but will also address more recent issues of concern to PMAA members both in the water and wastewater fields.
Topics to be discussed include:
Overview of PFAS
Recent state regulatory activities around the country, including the latest cleanup "standards"
A review of Pennsylvania PFAS-related issues
EPA's recent action to regulate PFAS under the Safe Drinking Water Act
Discussion on EPA's PFAS Action Plan and 2020 update
How PFAS-related actions could impact water and wastewater treatment plants in Pennsylvania
