The Professional Development Committee (PDC) presents an online webinar on the regulatory landscape for PFAS in biosolids and effluent/reuse. Our industry experts will provide an overview of PFAS and the associated regulatory outlook for drinking water, wastewater effluent, and biosolids. This session will include:
- Regulatory developments across the US and in California for drinking water, wastewater effluent, and biosolids.
- Treatability in wastewater and reuse applications.
- Recent findings and regulatory results.
- Interconnection between PFAS and groundwater standards, greenhouse gas emission reduction goals (SB 1383), and organics management.
By attending, you will gain an understanding of PFAS characteristics, sources for wastewater, options for PFAS source control and treatment, and the difference between long-chain and short-chain PFAS compounds in biosolids.
