Multi-State Source Water Threat Inventory: Analysis of High-Risk Threats and Critical Data Gaps
An EPA analysis identifies high-risk source water contaminant threats and critical data gaps in nine states. Each system’s threat profile includes occurrence data, storage volume, proximity to a drinking water source and health hazard ratings.
Speakers: Emily Smith
Session: PFAS IN WATER SUPPLIES (VS1_16)
Feb 10 10:40 AM MST
Identifying Potential PFAS Sources to Meet the Challenges of a Changing Regulatory Environment
This presentation will summarize a practical approach for identifying PFAS sources and discuss ways in which this approach has been implemented by utilities and regional water partnerships in Metropolitan Washington. Utilities interested in better understanding PFAS threats in their source waters will learn about a viable and comprehensive method put into practice by multiple water utilities and key data sources for identifying significant potential PFAS threats.
Speakers: Jennifer Benjamin, Steven Bieber, Gregory Prelewicz
Co-Authors: Margaret Kearns, Niffy Saji
We are also working on these projects that are being presented by our partners:
