The Northeast Waste Management Officials’ Association (NEWMOA) has partnered with the New England Interstate Water Pollution Control Commission (NEIWPCC), the Northeast States for Coordinated Air Use Management (NESCAUM), the Northeast Recycling Council (NERC), and others to organize a regional science conference on PFAS. The goals of the conference are:

  • Ensure that local, state, and federal action to address PFAS contamination is informed by the most current and reliable science
  • Facilitate networking and information-sharing among key stakeholders on PFAS topics
  • Identify important gaps in the science and policy to help inform future research

The conference will take place over three days and will include plenary and concurrent break-out sessions and an exhibit and poster area. There will be ample time during the breaks for networking and viewing the exhibits and posters. There will be a reception in the evening of the first and/or second days.

The Conference is expected to involve more than 500 attendees, including:

  • Local, state, and federal government officials
  • Academic researchers and students
  • Consultants and vendors
  • Companies that use, make, or sell products that contain PFAS
  • Non-governmental and environmental organizations
