Contaminated drinking water has been in the news nationally in recent months. In this 4-hour webinar, attendees will learn basic information about public (and private) water supplies and treatment for contaminants; brief history of contamination of drinking water supplies; key characteristics of lead (Pb) and perfluorinateds (specifically PFOS and PFOA); an overview of socioeconomic aspects of drinking water contamination; and current observations about risk perception and litigation related to contamination of drinking water.
Lead (Pb) and PFOS/PFOA will be used throughout the webinar to illustrate key concepts. In addition, flash polls will be scattered throughout the webinar to elicit your input and experience.
This webinar is appropriate for a wide range of participants who want to gain perspective on the issue of chemically-contaminated drinking water in the U.S. For example, people working for water supply systems may learn more about chemical contamination; engineers and scientists who investigate sources of contamination or treat contamination in situ or for drinking may gain insights into public health priorities; local, state and federal regulators and public health leaders may learn more about toxicity; and lawyers and news media employees may gain a more complete context for reporting and for pursuing specific cases
Participants will be provided a detailed agenda and a copy of the presentation slides.
