Event description

Description

One thing is certain. Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) continue to make sound waves in the environmental industry and beyond. As regulatory guidance of PFAS continues to evolve, there is a growing sense of uncertainty and urgency in both industry and the regulatory community alike.

This one-day seminar is designed for corporate environmental managers, attorneys, regulatory personnel, and policy makers who face concerns about managing PFAS impacts in the environment. Speakers discuss the current science and regulatory landscape in the northeast region and nationally while sharing innovative research findings and results from real-world practitioners. Participants will gain a strong understanding of current and projected regulatory actions, key considerations for site investigation and analytical practices, and the application of various treatment technologies. The seminar will include lunch and end with an expert panel discussion with the seminar speakers. Click here for full event details.
