Bilott to Present at Troubled Waters Drinking Water Conference

Taft attorney Robert A. Bilott will present at the Troubled Waters Drinking Water Conference in New York on May 23.

In the wake of the drinking water crisis in Flint, Mich., and concerns about drinking water systems closer to home, from Hoosick Falls to Petersburgh to Ithaca, N.Y. to North Bennington, Vt. and beyond, this half-day conference will focus on Perfluorooctanoic Acid (PFOA) and lead in drinking water. It will explore the history with perfluorinated chemicals (PFCs), federal and state responses to the PFOA contamination in Hoosick Falls, groundwater concerns in other jurisdictions, public health advisories, lead sampling in homes and schools, measures underway to address both PFCs and lead in drinking water (regulatory, legislative, litigation) and how residents can limit their exposure to both contaminants going forward.
