PFAS in Water
On May 5, 2020, Tara Paul participated in a webinar panel discussion on "PFAS in Water," hosted by the Environmental Law Institute (ELI). Tara and her fellow panelists explored the multi-faceted opportunities and obstacles for stakeholders litigating and regulating PFAS in two of the most prominent points of transmission: water and packaging.
As the second presentation of the ELI Master Class, PFAS: From Common Use to Concern, the panel dove into the environmental and human health impacts of PFAS contaminated waters. They tackled the best approaches to regulate, establish and enforce cleanups and safe drinking water standards. Additionally, these experienced water sector practitioners explored the federal and regional regulatory initiatives to address PFAS present in water, the risk management of PFAS-impacted sites and top medical monitoring approaches for communities and individuals exposed to PFAS.
