ACC PFAS Investigation 201 Live Webinar
Includes a Live Event on 10/08/2020 at 1:00 PM (EDT)
This ACC webinar will provide an overview of: key topics associated with PFAS investigations at airports. Understanding that airports are currently facing risks associated with Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) contamination as it relates to aqueous firefighting foam (AFFF) usage, it is important to understand a myriad of considerations when initiating and moving through an investigation process. This webinar will cover three topics: (1) evolving regulatory issues and what airports can do to limit liability; (2) public outreach and educational efforts, and the need to understand and adapt your communication style to different audiences; and (3) PFAS remediation techniques and assessment approach. This webinar is not an introduction to PFAS. The intent of this session is to provide a higher-level understanding of how airports can best navigate the PFAS investigation process in the face of an uncertain regulatory environment, few previously completed investigations, and environmental and public sensitivities.
At the end of this ACC webinar, participants will be able to:
• Better understand best practices to manage PFAS and related liability.
• Plan for educational and outreach efforts associated with addressing PFAS at airports.
• Recognize and incorporate both scientific and non-scientific factors involved in a PFAS investigation.
• Understand remedial methods that are in use, and those being evaluated in pilot projects.
• Navigate the PFAS investigation process.
