Session 1: Emerging Contaminants: Where are we now? Where are we going?
Session 2: Biden Administration Drinking Water Update

This two-part virtual roundtable dialogue will look at key legal and regulatory issues in the wa-ter sector as 2021 comes to a close and various policy and regulatory activities of the Biden Administration begin to take shape and are promulgated.  Both 90-minute sessions of this two-part program will feature moderated discussions by panels of experts from the water utility, legal, and regulatory arenas. 

The first session of this two-part program will focus on emerging contaminants, with an emphasis on where are we now with these critical issues…and where are we headed. Panelist Chris Moody (AWWA) will discuss developments with emerging contaminants such as PFAS, perchlorate, 1,2,3-trichloropropane, NDMA and other nitrosamines and 1,4-dioxane. Allyn Stern (Beveridge & Diamond) will discuss the legal and regulatory frameworks impacting how water utilities need to address the growing impacts of emerging contaminants on their operations. The second session of this two-part program panelists Eric Burneson (U.S.EPA ) and Ryan Carra (Beveridge & Diamond) will focus on new and evolving Biden Administration policies and regulatory actions that are (or will) impact drinking water utilities and the water sector as a whole.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Learn about current and pending legal and regulatory activities surrounding the management of emerging contaminants, and how water utilities can (and are) successful-ly managing these challenges.
  2. Hear how and why drinking water utilities are adapting their operations to meet new and changing CERCLA, TSCA and SDWA regulations.
  3. Learn about the prospects for new and/or changing regulations and policies likely to be forthcoming from the Biden Administration that can impact drinking water utility operations and the water sector as a whole.
