June 19-20, 2019
Location: Westerville, Ohio
This NGWA conference focuses on approaches for the management, mitigation, and remediation of sites contaminated with per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS).
PFAS is a unique class of emerging contaminants widespread in groundwater, surface water, sediment, soil, and air. Due to their human health and environmental effects, an increasing number of PFAS are becoming the focus of environmental protection agencies worldwide. The chemistry and environmental behavior of PFAS, as well as regulatory and toxicological evolution, create significant challenges for project planning, risk communication, and programmatic management.
This conference is intended to provide an opportunity to share lessons learned and present state-of-the-practice in scientific and management approaches to addressing this high-profile issue.
