PFAS Considerations for Wastewater Professionals

With PFAS becoming a growing concern it is important to understand sources of PFAS contamination, transport mechanisms, and receivers of PFAS waste in industrial and municipal wastewater. The USEPA released its PFAS Strategic Roadmap in late-2021 to move PFAS regulation forward in the coming years, which includes industrial and municipal dischargers of wastewater.

Selection of the applicable test methods and compound lists are undergoing change at the federal and state level. This can lead to confusion for the wastewater industry. Field sampling for PFAS can be very restrictive when it comes to how samples must be collected to ensure no cross contamination occurred during a sampling event.

In this presentation you will learn about:

  • PFAS Sources for industrial wastewater
  • PFAS Implications for Biosolids and Sludge
  • US EPA Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) PFAS Reporting Requirements
  • PFAS Test Methods and Compound Lists
  • PFAS Field Sampling and Resources
  • PFAS State and Federal Regulatory Update
