Public drinking water suppliers have been at the leading edge of dealing with the PFAS crisis. Just as systems were getting accustomed to the testing protocols and treatment regimes, ever decreasing (proposed) standards and advisories have ushered in a new period of uncertainty. As the regulatory net widens, additional public works facilities, including wastewater treatment plants, are also going to have their turn in the regulatory hot seat.

In conjunction with Part I of the EBC PFAS Series, PFAS in Solid Waste, which will address the dearth of disposal options across different media, and Part III, PFAS Management – Is it Risky Business?, this Water Resources program will survey the potential fallout from EPA’s proposal to list PFOA and PFOS as hazardous substances under CERCLA and the draft regulations on medium-sized POTWs that would impose reporting obligations on all sending facilities. As these changes in federal regulations trickle down to the states, local water and wastewater system operators are once against thrust into the vanguard of assessing and ameliorating the impacts from these pervasive compounds.

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