This EBC Water Resources webinar will showcase three presentations on legal implications and risk management perspectives surrounding per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS). Regulatory developments demand further investigation of PFAS in the environment, and stakeholders are often faced with realities of PFAS-related liabilities. This webinar will provide perspectives on how to understand those risks. Speakers will discuss the latest in litigation developments and strategies to manage PFAS risks affecting public water supplies.
