On July 18 the Drinking Water Coalition of New Jersey and the Association of Environmental Authorities will host a Local Leaders Summit with potential solutions to the PFOA/PFOS challenge, presenting a set of proposals aimed at managing the price tag.

A class of contaminants known as per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFOA/PFOS) are showing up more frequently in sampled drinking water. These chemicals pose a serious public health threat and a massive financial burden for localities.

A set of experts will help you better understand the nature of the PFOA/PFOS challenge, and they will present a set of viable proposals aimed at managing the price tag (Agenda).
