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

Register Now

Date: June 22-23, 2021
Location: Virtual event
Education level: Introductory to advanced

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 and agricultural 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.

The conference, planned to be held virtually, 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 February 7, 2021. Submissions are currently under review and, upon completion of that process, the link to the conference program will be posted here.
