Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS) – Regulation, Liabilities, and Potential Cost Recovery

Kaitlyn R. Maxwell will present for the Pennsylvania Bar Institute on this ubiquitous class of chemicals of emerging concern and the status of state and federal regulatory action, including potential implications for cost-recovery actions under CERCLA and HSCA, liability releases under Pennsylvania’s Act 2 program, and real estate transactions.

This webinar will address:
•Pennsylvania’s plans to investigate potential PFAS contamination in hundreds of public water supplies and to develop a maximum contaminant level;
•A technical overview of PFAS and their potential environmental threats;
•Developments at the federal level, including actions taken by EPA and the FDA;
•Implications of defining certain PFAS as “hazardous substances;” and
•How potential PFAS contamination can impact real estate transactions.
