PFAS IN WATER

POTABLE WATER

We can help you comply with the DOD mandate to treat PFOA and PFOS as regulated substances by testing all water systems supplying drinking water to the base.

NON-POTABLE WATERS

We can also test non-potable waters, including wastewater (influent and effluent), groundwater, surface water, and leachate for PFAS contamination.

PFAS IN SOLIDS

Pace® is also qualified to test for a wide range of compounds in solids, such as soil, sediment, and biota. We can use either the DoD validated methods or 537M, depending on your specific requirements.

SPECIAL PROJECTS: AFFF

We frequently test for PFAS on military installations and other sites where Aqueous Film-Forming Foam (AFFF) has been used to extinguish fires. Whether used as part of a training exercise or in the event of an actual fire, PFAS contamination resulting from AFFF can remain for decades, even if AFFF is no longer used on-site. Pace® can test for residual PFAS contamination. If AFFF has been used recently, we can ascertain the extent of the contamination or validate that PFAS has been effectively remediated.

SPECIAL PROJECTS: INCINERATORS

Incineration has been a DOD-approved method for disposing of stockpiles of PFAS-containing AFFF. However, soil, ash, groundwater, and air samples taken from incinerator sites and the surrounding area has shown elevated levels of PFAS. Pace® is capable of testing all of these matrices – and monitoring incinerator stacks for PFAS residue – to help you determine the efficacy of your disposal strategy.

SPECIAL PROJECTS: AIR & STACK EMISSIONS

Pace® has a long history of sampling stack emissions and ambient air for a wide range of contaminants. We’ve leveraged our expertise in this space to develop reliable methods for sampling, testing, and monitoring air emissions for PFAS compounds. Our team can help you:
  • Design your project, including sampling methods and procedures
  • Perform the sampling, using specialized media and equipment
  • Analyze the samples and deliver verifiable results
