Owners and operators of airports, water companies, municipalities and many other transportation authorities are suddenly facing increased risk of environmental remediation obligations, lawsuits, and related regulatory requirements due to soil and water contamination through the spraying of firefighter foam containing per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), a now-known to be hazardous substance, as well as suspected health risks to persons who may ingest or otherwise be exposed to these materials.
Join us for a two-hour seminar on March 26, 2019, where panelists will address 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, water companies, municipalities and other transportation authorities
- 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
