Fate of PFAS: From Groundwater to Tap Water Conference (#5010)

Register Now

Date: August 5-6, 2020
Location: Durham, New Hampshire

Overview:

This NGWA conference focuses on the fate and transport of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) from contaminated sites through groundwater, surface water, and other environmental media to drinking water systems.

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 will address hydrologic and environmental issues, as well as provide updates on regulations and toxicological studies and their effect on groundwater clean-up standards.

Conference panelists will include regulators, toxicologists, and water-supply managers. The 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.

The call for abstracts for this conference closed January 28, 2020. Submissions are currently under review and, upon completion of that process, the conference program will be posted online here.
