2. Black & Veatch has started their work to evaluate treatment options for removing perfluorinated compounds (PFCs).  Part of their work includes pilot testing of various filter media types to evaluate the effectiveness of PFC removal, which will include installing test apparatus at the plant to simulate full scale filter performance.

3. The CFPUA Board of Directors will hold a special meeting on Monday, June 26th at 11:00 a.m. to discuss action items for CFPUA process enhancements. These recommendations are a follow-up to the review discussed at Thursday's Board meeting.
