The conference is being 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.
