September 30: Coal Tar Based Pavement Sealcoats: Health and Environmental Overview. Register

Scientists have identified a common type of pavement sealcoat – coal tar sealcoat - as a major source of dangerous chemicals in streams and lakes adjacent to its application, and a significant health risk to the public, especially young children, who use and live by driveways, parking lots, and surfaces coated with the product.  These chemicals, PAHs, are found in the sediments of nearby lakes and streams and in particles and dust from pavements coated with this type of product.

To find our more, please join us for a webinar on September 30th at 12pm (EST) to learn more about this product, the problems and costs it is causing communities and easy steps to curb future pollution problems.  Our guest speaker will be Dr. Barbara Mahler, Research Hydrologist with the U.S. Geological Survey Division and leading researcher on coal-tar sealcoats.
