PFAS is the water industry topic du jour, shaped by lawsuits, emerging regulations, infrastructure investment and disadvantaged communities. So far, however, much of the focus has been on the U.S. drinking water sector. But these emerging contaminants are impacting water supplies and, as a result, policy makers in Europe and Australia.
Varied approaches to tackle PFAS exist across the globe, including by regional adoption, nation-wide action, and incremental growth markets. For this reason, Reese Tisdale has invited colleagues Keith Hays and Lauren Balsamo to share their perspectives on how cities, communities, and companies are approaching emerging contaminants, globally.
