Ann Zwick will moderate a panel entitled "Emerging Contaminants and Remediation Issues" at the upcoming Air & Waste Management Association - Lake Michigan States Section's 2019 Annual Waste Conference.

This presentation will include an overview of the sources, chemistry, environmental fate and transport, exposure, toxicology, and occurrence of PFAS with an emphasis on the state of knowledge regarding the characterization and remediation of PFAS-impacted sites, as well as risk management approaches. The discussion will include recent updates on state and federal regulatory issues and an outline of the spectrum of legal challenges associated with the historical use of PFAS at industrial and military facilities. We also review the ever evolving world of coal ash issues.

The day will include opportunities to:

  • Engage in discussion with U.S. EPA, Region 5 and State waste regulators;
  • Get status updates regarding the implementation of recent regulations and policies and how they may impact your business;
  • Hear success stories and cautionary tales; and
  • Ask questions of regulators or your peers regarding your own waste management challenges as you network with attendees and speakers.

The conference will conclude with a networking reception that is open to attendees, A&WMA members, and their guests.
