How the PFAS regulations got to where they are and what you can legally do to recover costs for damages
Water utilities are facing substantial expense to deal with PFAS/PFOS contamination. They are struggling to understand how the EPA’s new health advisory will impact them and where funds will come from to pay for the costs of response and treatment.
This presentation will detail the legal review process that can be undertaken by a utility interested in pursuing cost recovery options for emerging contaminants including replacement or treatment of affected well, capital costs, and operation and maintenance costs for the lifetime of affected wells. The factors to consider when evaluating manufacturer liability will be reviewed. General resource commitments and timelines for undertaking this process will also be particularized.
