Forum Set on PFAS Research Progress

This illustration from PFAS Testing Network shows how PFAS can reach water sources.

The North Carolina Policy Collaboratory and the North Carolina PFAS Testing Network are hosting at 6 p.m. May 4 a virtual forum to share ongoing research on per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances, or PFAS, and GenX.

PFAS  is a family of emerging contaminants that includes the compound GenX, which has affected the Cape Fear River Basin.

Featured research will include data on PFAS in public water supplies in North Carolina, potential health effects of PFAS and new research projects on PFAS in soil and animals. Methods of removing PFAS from water also will be presented.

There will be time for public questions and answers. A full agenda will be announced.

The event is free but attendees must register online in advance of the webinar.
