Join the Huron River Watershed Council for a PFAS science and policy update with the National Wildlife Federation.

Learn how state and federal officials can and should confront the PFAS crisis.

As communities across the Great Lakes region grapple with contaminated drinking water due to toxic PFAS chemicals, a new National Wildlife Federation report outlines how state and federal officials can and should set clean water protections, support water infrastructure investment, and back cutting-edge research to prevent and remediate insidious PFAS pollution.

HRWC will host Oday Salim, staff attorney at the National Wildlife Federation and co-author of the report for a discussion of what tools are available and what Michigan and neighboring states are doing to confront the PFAS crisis and protect the health of people and wildlife.

Free and open to the public.

5pm: Light refreshments and networking

5:30pm: Talk begins

There will be time for audience questions and discussion. We want to hear your concerns.
