You Found PFAS: Now What…

Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS) are a group of man-made compounds that have extensive industrial and consumer product applications including fire fighting foams, non-stick surfaces, and surfactants.  They are persistent in the environment and are water soluble, resulting in PFAS being found in groundwaters and surface waters across the country.  Many of the states in the Northeast have recently developed or are considering enforceable drinking water standards.  With these newly promulgated regulations, water systems are sampling their sources and finding various PFAS concentrations.  This workshop will focus on some of the key initial steps for PFAS sampling and evaluating PFAS management strategies.
