APWA Webinar: PFAS in Your Water

APWA Webinar: PFAS in Your Water

Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are manmade chemicals that includes PFOA, PFOS, and others; manufactured and used around the United States since the ‘40s. PFAS are found in water-repellent, wrinkle-free, and stain-resistant fabrics; non-stick cookware; paints; firefighting foam; and other household and industrial products. These compounds are persistent in the environment and in the human body; they don’t break down and accumulate over time. PFAS has been found in drinking water and full cycle back in wastewater sludge.

Dan Bryant co-presents this session, designed to help you understand PFAS, how it gets into our water and wastewater, it’s risks and current thinking in public works.
