PFAS: Advancing the Understanding of Fate and Transport
June 4, 2020 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm
Please join the Northeast Waste Management Officials’ Association (NEWMOA) for a webinar to help understand the prevalence of poly- and perfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) in the environment and the risk it might pose to the public. Join us to learn more and ask your questions!
1:30 to 3:00 (Eastern)
Fate & Transport and Recycling of PFAS in the Environment
Steve LaRosa, Emerging Contaminant Technical Leader, Weston & Sampson will present an overview of PFAS Fate & Transport including sources of PFAS in the environment and how it cycles through the different media.
Understanding PFAS Fate & Transport: Review of Models for Evaluating PFAS in Land Applied Residuals & Biosolids
Derek Sain, Research Scientist, NCASI, Dr. Erika Houtz, Senior Environmental Engineer, Arcadis, and Chris Shepherd, Principal Hydrogeologist, Arcadis will present the findings from a March 2020 study that evaluated the capabilities of existing models to assess PFAS transport from land applied residuals. The study focused on three primary pathways: leaching to groundwater, surface water runoff, and plant uptake models.
FREE for federal, state, and local government officials only. All others must pay a $25 registration fee with a credit card when registering.
