National Ground Water Association

The National Ground Water Association released Groundwater and PFAS: State of Knowledge and Practice. This comprehensive guidance document explores these potentially hazardous, and widely discussed, compounds in roundwater and soil. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA), per- and polyfluoroalkyl (PFAS) compounds are widely used to make products more stain-resistant, waterproof, and/of nonstick, and are a class of manmade hemicals that are persistent in the environment and in the human body. The document summarizes the fate, ransport, remediation, and treatment of PFAS, as well as current technologies, methods, and field procedures used to haracterize sites and test remediation and treatment technologies.
