New PFAS Outreach Resources
The New England Water Environment Association (NEWEA) and North East Biosolids & Residuals Association (NEBRA) teamed up on a PFAS communication campaign aimed at increasing awareness among utility customers seeking information on PFAS presence, effects, opportunities for mitigation, and steps needed to reduce its existence. A range of available options are available including posters, buck slips, and an FAQ sheet. Suggested donations are encouraged to support this outreach effort. Access these new materials here.
