Rivanna River Basin Annual Conference
September 28 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm
The 2023 Rivanna River Basin Conference will focus on Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS), also known as “forever chemicals”, and efforts to study and mitigate their persistence in the environment. PFAS are a group of man-made chemicals used in a variety of products, that do not break down in the environment or our bodies, and can contaminate drinking water, harm wildlife, and present human health risks and other negative impacts.
We will we hear from experts from the Environmental Protection Agency, Rivanna Water and Sewer Authority, Department of Environmental Quality, Virginia Department of Health, and Western Virginia Water Authority to learn about recent studies, regulatory updates, the risks to our community, and the solutions that are being developed to address PFAS.
The Rivanna River Basin Commission is dedicated to the health of the Rivanna basin and is excited to provide you with the free opportunity to learn more about this evolving topic. Register today via Eventbrite to secure your spot at this year’s event!
