Recording of a 90-minute CLE video webinar with Q&A
This CLE webinar will advise environmental counsel on the new EPA rules related to per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) and safe drinking water standards. The panel will discuss how the reclassification of these chemicals as hazardous substances will affect those standards, regional screening levels, and the need for future remediation to remove PFAS from water sources.
- History of regulation
- Biden PFAS roadmap
- New health advisory levels
- Regional screening levels
- Remediation levels
- CERCLA liability
- New health advisory levels
- Future regulation
The panel will discuss these and other key topics:
- What are the current health advisory levels for PFAS?
- How are HALs standards considered in CERCLA litigation?
- What is the future of PFAS regulation?
