Description: Don’t slip up with these emerging contaminants! Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are an emerging contaminant with a variety of impacts on wastewater systems. PFAS have been used for years due to their slippery properties, but recent evidence has shed a light on their harmful effects on humans and the environment. The EPA is currently working on regulations for PFAS in water and wastewater and this training is designed to help communities understand what this means for them. This training is designed to provide the basics for PFAS, inform participants on PFAS developments from the EPA, and discuss PFAS prevention strategies and technology.

Training Objectives:

  • Learn the basic of what PFAS is, and how it impacts the sewer system and the environment
  • Learn about domestic and commercial PFAS
  • Discuss the EPA PFAS roadmap and planned PFAS regulations
  • Introduce available tools for assessing PFAS in your system
  • Learn about PFAS management planning, PFAS removal technology and funding
