PFAS chemicals are called “Forever Chemicals”. Used for decades in manufacturing, they are suspected carcinogens, don’t breakdown, and are in many of our water sources. The Water Dialogue webinar will explore what actions water agencies can take to comply with new notification and response level thresholds? Those actions include shutting down groundwater wells and flipping to imported water or turning to treatment in the hopes of eliminating the threat.

To understand the options open to retail, wastewater and recycled water agencies, speakers will focus on how PFAS is impacting imported and local water supply, the status of the state’s rule making process and potential new regulations, how agencies are working with polluters, the latest treatment technologies for drinking water systems, and how remediation projects could be funded.

Presented by the Southern California Water Dialog.
