Ken Gray Workshop Panelist at Association for Environmental Health & Sciences Foundation 34th Annual International Conference on Soils, Sediments, Water and Energy
Pierce Atwood Environmental Practice Group partner Kenneth F. Gray will participate in a workshop titled, “Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS): The Latest Information”
This workshop is designed to provide a comprehensive understanding of many different issues and the most up-to-date information associated with PFAS including:
- History and sources of PFAS
- Regulatory status and future implications
- The unique chemistry of PFAS, including precursors; exposure, health effects, and toxicity
- Sampling and analytical challenges and options
- Fate and transport
- Remediation challenges
- Data evaluation
Because of the many PFAS lawsuits in New England and elsewhere, this panel will address legal issues arising from PFAS contamination and legal liabilities that could arise from consultant and engineering practices.
Ken Gray’s practice focuses on counseling and enforcement issues related to hazardous substance and hazardous waste management, cleanup, and liability, including toxic tort matters; chemical safety requirements under a variety of laws including the Occupational Safety and Health Act; product regulation including toxic substance manufacturing and processing; emergency planning, response, and community right-to-know requirements; groundwater and drinking water regulation; and transactional matters related to environmental concerns.
