STEEP Science Day: Learning About Industrial Contaminants

About: Barnstable County residents are invited to join with scientists and others from the University of Rhode Island, Harvard University and the Silent Spring Institute to learn more about the industrial contaminants affecting the region and the efforts to study them. The event will focus on sharing information about a group of industrial compounds called perfluoroalkyl substances and polyfluoroalkyl substances, together called PFASs. Manufactured since the 1950s, the compounds are used in numerous consumer products and in firefighting foams. Their serious health effects are only now beginning to emerge. Some residents of Barnstable County have been affected by the compounds through their drinking water, which became contaminated with PFASs as a result of firefighting foams used at Joint Base Cape Cod and the county fire training academy. The event will begin with the screening of the film “The Island and the Whales,” which highlights a community in the Faroe Islands of northern Europe where the STEEP team is also working. Several presentations will be offered by members of the STEEP team beginning at 12:30 p.m. Topics include the status of a lawsuit against PFAS-manufacturer 3M, updates on research underway, and how local residents can participate in a well water testing program. From 3-4:30 p.m., participants may tour the Hyannis Water System treatment plant to learn about PFAS reduction efforts, hear updates from graduate students about ongoing research and engage in a discussion about community information needs. The event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be available.
