Description:

PFAS have been all over the news recently with anxieties of high levels of drinking water contamination. PFAS are a group of man-made chemicals which include Perfluorooctanoic Acid (PFOA) and Perfluorooctanesulfonic Acid (PFOS). Known as "forever chemicals" PFAS compounds have been found widely in the environment including thousands of groundwater sources throughout the US.

 

PFAS compounds currently the #1 emerging threat to water systems. Continuing studies are identifying potential health risks associated with these chemicals. This session examines the origin, the concerns, and provides information for small systems about protecting public health.

 

Participants will learn:

·        Why these "forever" chemicals are not going away

·        Where do PFAS come from

·        What are health effects of PFAS

·        PFAS regulations in drinking water 

·        PFAS treatment technologies for drinking water systems

 

The recommended audience includes board members, manager, and operators.
