Communicating PFAS and Other Contaminants of Emerging Concern

How do the new PFAS regulations impact your business? What do you say when your boss asks your opinion on PFAS and other contaminants of emerging concern? Can you explain PFAS in your community?


Join communications expert Mike McGill, who has been at the forefront of this issue for several years, as he provides his insights, successes, and lessons learned on communicating this difficult topic.


Some of the learning objectives are:

  1. Learn why PFAS is "emerging" although it has been around for decades.

  2. Understand the process and logic that USEPA used to pass the new regulations.

  3. Apply communication approaches on this topic in different settings (i.e., personal, work teams, sr mgt, public)

  4. Understand common frequently asked questions.

  5. Apply practical communications input as a technical professional.

Project Development





Featured Project

JD Solomon Solutions is supporting an update to Mount Pleasant Waterworks enterprise condition assessment program. MPW has been doing condition assessments for more than 20 years, but it's time to re-align with a common approach across all asset classes. We piloted two industry-leading methods at their largest wastewater pump station, one of the water plants, and one of the wastewater plants. MPW has landed on a hybrid method suitable to their needs and operating context.

Criticality Is the Place to Start

The Solomon-Oldach Asset Prioritization (SOAP) method is an alternate method for conducting criticality analysis for use on industrial assets and public infrastructure; SOAP can result in staff time savings of up to 70% compared to traditional methods, which are time-consuming and sometimes misleading.

The methodology follows many of the traditional approaches, including cross-functional teams. SOAP's primary differences are related to preference ballots for system-level evaluation and the subsequent use of a function-based scoring system at the asset level.

Contact us for more information about our solutions for assessing criticality. All cost-effective operations improvements start with a criticality analysis.
