The results of UCMR-3 showed PFAS being found coast to coast in groundwater and some surface waters, and that it was often linked to industrial manufacturing or Class B firefighting foam usage. Aggressive provisional health advisories have been set by EPA for PFOA and PFOS, and a new action plan was released in February 2019. There has been a flurry of activity by individual states and industry to help better inform the public and find better technologies to handle this new issue. The presentation will give an update about some of the new/modified treatment technologies being employed for PFAS, present lessons learned from installed projects, and give an update about the regulatory environment for PFAS.
