NLC & Assoc. for Advancement of Science Resources

The National League of Cities (NLC) partnered with the American Association for the Advancement of Science’s Center for Scientific Evidence in Public Issues (AAAS EPI Center) to offer a stakeholder engagement summit. Topics related to water pollution and management, including contamination from persistent chemicals such as PFAS were discussed. The summit included an opportunity to connect with scientific experts actively working to address PFAS, explore whether the existing scientific evidence is accessible and useful for decision-makers, and address the specific concerns of participants. (Jerry Deschane attended this Summit in Washington DC on Feb. 7, 2020.)
