About
PFAS has become an important topic for people, government, and industry over the last few years. We know that PFAS chemicals do not break down easily in the environment and can contaminate drinking water and move through soils. Many call PFAS the environmental crisis of this generation.

So, what can we do?

Our expert speakers from Veolia and the American Water Works Association will discuss the environmental implications of PFAS, examine current state and federal regulations, analyze the implications for municipalities and industries, and talk about realistic solutions and the path forward.
