The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently released an 852-page review of the health risks of perfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS). The study suggests that current health advisories for PFAS, established by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), may not be strict enough to address serious public health risks.
Thank you to everyone who attended our UCMR 4 Workshop this month – the event was completely sold out! With UCMR 4 just around the corner, we are happy that we were able to inform you about the methods, analyses, special requirements, and responsibilities of the newest round of the Unregulated Contaminant Monitoring Rule (UCMR 4) and answer your questions. We have two upcoming workshops: our semi-annual Drinking Water Workshop and a second UCMR 4 Workshop.
