Webinar on ASDWA’s New PFAS – Source Water Protection Guide and Toolkit

On June 18, 2020 from 1:00 – 2:30 pm (eastern time), ASDWA will conduct a webinar entitled, “Launching ASDWA’s New PFAS – Source Water Protection Guide and Toolkit.” This webinar will showcase the new guide and toolkit that was developed with support from a Project Advisory Council (PAC) with representatives from nine states (Colorado, Kansas, Minnesota, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Vermont, Virginia, and Wisconsin), and the Cadmus Group. The purpose of the guide is to demonstrate and share effective strategies for addressing PFAS contamination risk in source waters that will help inform policy decisions, assist state drinking water programs in protecting public health, and encourage collaboration and communication among states and water utilities. The tool includes three main components.

  1. The Decision Support Tool provides examples of state actions to address PFAS contamination.
  2. The Technical Appendix includes an overview of PFAS, chemicals of concern, PFAS in the U.S., and state PFAS profiles.
  3. The Mapping Guidance aids identifying and mapping source waters that are vulnerable to PFAS contamination.
