Thank you to our Silver Sponsors


This EBC Connecticut Emerging Contaminants program will provide an update on the status of Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS). Previous EBC programs discussing PFAS have focused on providing a general overview of these chemicals, including naming conventions, sources and potentially-affected sites, sampling concerns, unique chemistry, fate & transport, and general toxicity information. This program is designed to go to the next level with an assumption that the PFAS basics are already understood. There will be a brief 15-minute introduction to review some of the basics but the focus of the program will be on the latest analytical methods, fate and transport in the environment, toxicity and health effects, legal implications, and the CTDEEP regulatory perspective.  Attendees are encouraged to raise questions for discussion about the technical and regulatory challenges associated with PFAS investigations.

A robust panel discussion with the audience will conclude the program.

General Continuing Education Certificates are awarded by the EBC for this program (3.5 training contact hours).  Please select this option during registration if you wish to receive a certificate.
