Per and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are appearing in drinking water across the United States. Since the EPA’s adoption of advisory drinking water levels for PFAS in 2016, it has re-emerged as a contaminant of concern at scores of sites across the country.

PFAS are man-made chemicals, once believed to be non-toxic, that are stable in the environment and water-soluble, meaning they can remain in groundwater or drinking water for a long time without breaking down. This is a massive issue for all the industries involved in their production and use—because water or other substances contaminated with PFAS have the ability to harm humans and animals in both the short- and long-term. While almost every industry is associated with PFAS, the industries with the most common occurrences of PFAS use are food and beverage, manufacturing, technology, and chemical

Trusted Advisors

Since PFAS management has become such a pressing need for many local governments and companies, numerous firms, sometimes with little to no history of assessing for PFAS or related contaminants, have popped up claiming to solve contamination problems.

This spells trouble: PFAS assessments are highly technical and require a team of knowledgeable experts to analyze and interpret the results correctly. If done poorly, it can mean the difference between clean drinking water and contamination, with all its associated liability, cost, and business disruption. (Plus it always costs more to do something right the second time.)

Your best, safest, and most cost-effective bet is to leave PFAS to the professionals.
