Rivanna River Basin Commission Annual Conference
Thursday, September 28th, 9:00 am- 12:30 pm
Albemarle County Office Building, Lane Auditorium
Join the Rivanna River Basin Commission for this year’s annual conference. Speaker presentations 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. Visit the registration page to secure your spot and receive updates regarding the event!
