On March 25, the AWWA webcast series will continue with Perchlorate, Pharmaceuticals, and Other Emerging Contaminants—Where Are We Now? Emerging contaminants remain a concern, particularly for those most vulnerable in our population. Several environmental studies have sought to identify an association between drinking water contaminated with perchlorate and measures of thyroid impairment.

AWWA’s panel of experts will discuss perchlorate and other issues, as well as whether or not the new Administration will be able to address this situation given other competing priorities.

Webcast presenters include:

  • Alan Roberson – Director of Regulatory Affairs, AWWA Government Affairs
  • Zaid Chowdhury – Vice President, Malcolm Pirnie, Inc.
  • Dr. Shane A. Snyder – R&D Project Manager, Southern Nevada Water Authority
  • Brett Vanderford – Research Chemist, Southern Nevada Water Authority
