Webinar: The ABCs of PFAS - What County Officials Need to Know

Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are a class of man-made chemicals that have been widely used in consumer and industrial products since the 1960s and are now known to have dangerous health effects.

Despite recent efforts to ban PFAS in food packaging, firefighting foam, cosmetics, and other products where they are commonly used, these chemicals can still be found in soil, surface water, groundwater, and public water supplies across New York State.

As owners, users, and regulators of water resources and protectors of public health, counties will play a critical role in addressing concerns with PFAS exposure in their communities.

This webinar brings county leaders up to speed on what New York State is doing to regulate these “forever chemicals” and what resources and technologies are available to remove them from our environment and drinking water.
