On Thursday, December 13, 2018, from 8:30 am to 4:45 pm, the Interstate Technology and Regulatory Council (ITRC) will be providing a training seminar on per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS). Hosted by Grand Valley State University at the L.V. Eberhard Center in Grand Rapids, Michigan, the training will explore key elements for characterizing and managing PFAS-impacted sites and will cover topics such as the current state of PFAS-related regulations (including in Michigan), site characterization (sampling and analysis), complex mechanisms that impact fate and transport, toxicity and risk assessment, current and potential treatment technologies, aqueous film-forming foam (AFFF), and risk communication.
Terraphase Principal and risk assessment expert Kevin Long will be covering material related to PFAS toxicity and risk assessment. For the remainder of the course, he will be joined by other experts from ITRC’s PFAS team including individuals from the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ) and Minnesota Department of Health.
