NYSBA- Environmental Law Section, TROUBLED WATERS – DRINKING WATER CONFERENCE

  • May 23, 2016
  • 9:00 AM - 12:15 PM
  • Pace University’s downtown campus adjacent to the Brooklyn Bridge.

The New York State Bar Association will host this conference, co-sponsored by the Environmental Law Section and Pace Law School, and will bring together the academic, governmental, non-profit and private sectors for a much needed discussion on our drinking water systems. 

In the wake of the drinking water crisis in Flint, Michigan and concerns about drinking water systems closer to home from Hoosick Falls, New York to North Bennington, Vermont to the Newark School system and beyond, this half-day conference will focus on contaminants such as PFOA and lead in our drinking water, how we can repair our compromised infrastructure and how we limit our exposure to such contaminants going forward.  

Further details will be posted on the NYSBA website and LinkedIn. For further information, contactwieder.marla@epa.gov

 The Section’s program planners are looking for a speaker on environmental justice issues related to drinking water—if anyone has any recommendations for such a speaker, please contact Marla Wieder (wieder.marla@epa.gov)
