Poly- and perfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are a large class of chemicals that have been used in numerous consumer and industrial processes due to their oil and water resistant properties and their exceptional stability. Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluorooctane sulfonic acid (PFOS) are two of the most common PFAS found in the environment and in the human body. PFAS have been widely used in many applications, including carpet and fabric protection, food packaging, and aqueous film-forming foams (AFFF) used for firefighting. Several states in the northeast have sites where drinking water is impacted above EPA's 70 parts-per-trillion health advisory level for PFOA and PFOS (combined).
The workshop will provide information on various aspects of investigating and treating sites with PFAS contamination, including:
Sources of PFAS in the environment
Sampling & analysis considerations
Precursers & transformation
PFAS fate & transport, including air deposition
Treatment options for drinking water systems & private wells
Remediation strategies for PFAS in soil & groundwater
State & EPA case studies, policy developments, & lessons learned
