This CLE presentation will address the latest developments on Perfluoroalkyl and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS) regulation and examine challenges in the context of voluntary cleanups, transactions, and litigation.
The program will offer:
- A refresher on the chemical properties of per and polyfluoroalkyl substances and their impacts on the environment
- Guidance regarding the real-world implications of:
- The recently published medium-specific concentrations (MSCs) for PFOA, PFOS, and PFNB in soil and groundwater on voluntary cleanups undertaken under Act 2
- PADEP’s proposed maximum contaminant levels (MCLs) for PFOA and PFOS in drinking water and the impact of EPA’s updated Health Advisory Level
- EPA’s recent PFAS-related regulations and proposed regulations, including the proposed listing of POFA and PFOS as Hazardous Substances under CERCLA
- The challenges of detection, delineation, and remediation of PFAS
PFAS are a prevalent emerging environmental contaminant and there is now an increased awareness of the potential adverse human health and environmental impacts of PFAS. Attend this program to learn what you need to know and do about PFAS regulations.
