An Introductory Webinar for Airport Owners and Operators
Under FAA Part 139, airports are required to demonstrate safety compliance through spraying a firefighting foam containing per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), a now-known to be hazardous substance.
Owners and operators of airports are suddenly facing increased risk of environmental remediation obligations, lawsuits, and related regulatory requirements due to soil and water contamination, as well as suspected health risks to persons who may ingest or otherwise be exposed to these materials.
What should airports do given the certification requirements compared to the risks? During this webinar, we will address this question in addition to the following topics:
- Overview of and distinctions between Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), Perfluorooctanesulfonic acid (PFOS), Perfluorononanoic acid (PFNA) and other PFAS compounds
- The origins and current state of PFAS litigation as it relates to airports
- The general science aspects of PFAS for the layman
- The current and future state of cleanup and treatment technologies for remediation of PFAS contamination
- More in depth look at PFAS materials from a legal and policy perspective
