PFAS IN GROUND & SURFACE WATERS

Home / PFAS Matrices / Ground & Surface Waters

PACE® PROVIDES PFAS TESTING FOR GROUNDWATER AND SURFACE WATER TO SUPPORT PFAS REMEDIATION, CONTROL, AND RISK MITIGATION EFFORTS.

PROTECTING THE SOURCE

Since many communities get their drinking water from ground and surface waters, protecting these sources can be key to protecting community health.

EPA TARGETS GROUND & SURFACE WATERS

The U.S. EPA has announced several initiatives designed to assess and control PFAS contamination in groundwater and surface waters across the country.

EPA RAISES THE STAKES FOR INDUSTRY & MANUFACTURING

The EPA will seek to hold polluters and other responsible parties accountable for their actions and for PFAS remediation efforts. In its Strategic Plan, the agency mentions more than a dozen industries by name. Risk assessment and mitigation will be more important than ever for businesses in these sectors.

STATE ACTION ON PFAS IN GROUND & SURFACE WATERS

Many states already have limits on PFAS discharge to ground and surface waters. With the EPA’s increasing focus on PFAS in drinking water sources and the environment, additional state-level action is expected. Pace® can provide your organization with a state-specific briefing to support your PFAS control and risk-mitigation efforts.

PRIMARY METHODS FOR PFAS TESTING IN GROUND & SURFACE WATERS

Several methods are available to analyze PFAS in ground and surface waters. Pace® can help you select the right method based on the medium and the goals of your project.
