PFAS Webinar Series

Ready to dive deeper into PFAS concepts? Trihydro is launching a 3-part PFAS webinar series to help you understand how the latest research may impact your operations.

Part 1: A Deeper Dive into the PFAS Problem

Trihydro PFAS Problem Webinar

Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) have increasingly made headlines since 2016 when the U.S. EPA released health advisory levels of 70 ppt for certain PFAS.  As public attention toward PFAS increases, so too does the number of overview presentations and webinars.  Trihydro’s 3-part PFAS webinar series is designed for those who have heard one or more of these introductory-level PFAS talks, or have hands-on experience with PFAS, but are interested in the science underlying the hype.   Join us for Part 1 where we'll dive into advanced PFAS concepts, including:

  • How ‘301’ level PFAS concepts apply to PFAS site management
  • How public perception of PFAS relates to the science
  • How PFAS sources (industrial use, firefighting foam, landfills, wastewater, biosolids) affect their transport and transformation in the environment
  • Factors to consider for AFFF handling and/or replacement

12:00PM - 1:00PM Mountain Time
Speaker: Mitch Olson, PhD, PE, Emerging Contaminants Specialist, Trihydro



Part 2: Site Characterization and Remediation Considerations 

Trihydro PFAS Webinar Series Webinar 2

Because PFAS sources are often complex mixtures, understanding their unique fate and transport considerations poses a challenge.  Join us for Part 2 of Trihydro's PFAS webinar series where we’ll discuss site type considerations, sampling, and fate and transport with regard to contaminated site investigation and cleanup.

Part 3: Data Analysis, Interpretation, and Risk Assessment

PFAS Webinar 3 

You’ve detected PFAS compounds – now what?  Join us for the third and final installment of Trihydro’s PFAS webinar series.  We’ll dig into how to evaluate and validate data, discuss conceptual model considerations, and explain how successful data interpretation and understanding of limitations translates directly into effective risk assessment and management.
