Why is the Workshop Important?

PFAS (polyfluoroalkyl substances) contamination in groundwater and surface-water is a widespread problem throughout the world. Practitioners, regulators and researchers are striving to understand the toxicology, fate, chemical transformation, mobility and remediation of this emerging contaminate. This informative introductory workshop will address the fundamental aspects of PFAS (polyfluoroalkyl substances) contamination in groundwater and surface-water and discuss the current state of knowledge and practice nationally and internationally.

This workshop aims to provide an informational workshop for participants to gain knowledge and practice regarding PFAS-contaminated sites and to provide a forum for key stakeholders to share knowledge across organisations, to identify key knowledge gaps and to discuss collaborative opportunities for research and to build capacity via training on this subject matter.

This highly participative panel discussion will explore opportunities for research collaboration and how to facilitate a national coordinated approach to provide information and the transfer of knowledge to practitioners, professionals and the wider community.

Who Should Attend?

Practitioners, researchers, regulators, and professionals working within the water sector.
