Presentation Title

Water Quality Governance: the PFAS Element. Implications and Paths Forward

Jorge Caspary, P.G., Principal, Cameron Cole

Abstract

The pervasiveness of PFAS will affect how water quality and quantity governance is implemented in the future. The existing framework is inadequate to ensure water planners are aware of the extent of contaminated groundwater.  New interactions and processes are needed to ensure future adequate water supplies.
