Jason Conder to Co-Present on PFAS Ecological Risk Assessment Approaches as Part of SERDP and ESTCP Webinar Series
Jason Conder will co-present "Ecological Risk Assessment of PFASs to Threatened and Endangered Species at AFFF Sites" as part of a webinar series put on by the Strategic Environmental Research and Development Program (SERDP) and the Environmental Security Technology Certification Program (ESTCP). The webinar will take place at 12:00 p.m. (US and Canada) on April 9, 2020.
Jason's co-presenter will be Dr. Marisol Sepulveda of Purdue University.
Jason is a Principal Scientist based in California with more than 15 years of experience focused on risk assessment and contaminated sediments in contaminated site assessment and management, environmental toxicology, and ecological and human health risk assessment. He will summarize his work to develop guidance for assessing the ecological risks from PFAS to threatened and endangered species. The guidance provides clear steps to quantitatively evaluate ecological risks and enable site managers to make defensible, risk-based management decisions using the best available information and approaches.
The overarching goal of the webinar series is to promote the transfer of innovative, cost-effective, and sustainable solutions developed by SERDP and ESTCP. The series targets end users, including practitioners, the regulatory community, and researchers with the objective of providing cutting-edge and practical information from sponsored research and technology demonstrations in an easily accessible format and at no cost.
SERDP is the U.S. Department of Defense's environmental science and technology program, planned and executed in partnership with the Department of Energy (DOE) and the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), with participation by numerous other federal and non-federal organizations. SERDP invests across a broad spectrum of basic and applied research, as well as advanced development.
ESTCP is the Department's environmental technology demonstration and validation program. The program promotes the transfer of innovative technologies that have successfully established proof of concept to field or production use. ESTCP demonstrations collect cost and performance data to overcome the barriers to employ an innovative technology because of concerns regarding technical or programmatic risk.
