PFAS Webinar—Jan 19

The State of the Science, Regulations, and Approaches for PFAS in Wastewater
PFAS in wastewater and biosolids is a highly discussed and quickly evolving topic, and it can be difficult to keep up with new regulations and studies on its impact. The Sustainability, Resource Recovery, and Biosolids Committee and the Government Affairs Committee are hosting a joint webinar on January 19 from 1 - 3 p.m. PST about PFAS. We are excited to have Jason Condor (Geosyntec Consultants), Frank Dick (City of Vancouver), and Rashi Gupta and Cameron Clark (Carollo) present about potential upcoming wastewater and biosolids regulations related to PFAS, recent studies on the impact of PFAS and their correlation to regulations, and the latest science for evaluating risks associated with PFAS in biosolids. This webinar will provide 0.2 CEUs, pending approval.

The webinar is free to attend and open to everyone, but you must register to attend. Click this link to register now. We hope to see you there!

Dr. Jason Conder (Geosyntec Consultants) will present “Environmental Risk Considerations for Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances in Biosolids”. This presentation will describe the available tools for evaluating ecological and human health risk assessment, particularly as it applies to understanding potential risks associated with PFAS in biosolids. Jason will also discuss the current state of tools for risk-based decision making and resources for understanding PFAS in biosolids.

Rashi Gupta and Cameron Clark will present on the latest information related to PFAS regulations, state and EPA, and how the water and wastewater industry is reacting. In an effort to address PFAS early on, some states are looking at PFAS limits for drinking water as well as land applied biosolids. They will also examine the potential impact of PFAS on the beneficial use of biosolids in agriculture and other reuse options based on the latest data and research. Finally, the webinar will review upcoming studies related to PFAS in biosolids and how to stay up-to-date on these efforts, and potential technologies that can address emerging contaminants such as PFAS.

Frank Dick will present on the potential and likely upcoming requirements for Publicly Owned Treatment Works (POTW) National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permits to include influent and effluent sampling requirements as well as provisions for pretreatment and Best Management Practices (BMPs).
