We provide case studies for three disparate communities removing PFAS from their water sources using either carbon or resin, which helps you understand how your community can address the issue.
We are learning that polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), also referred to as perfluorinated chemicals (PFCs), are man-made chemical compounds that are not naturally occurring in the environment. They are very stable compounds that are resilient to breakdown in the environment. EPA has added six (6) perfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) to the Third Unregulated Contaminant Monitoring Rule (UCMR 3).
Attendees are introduced to two proven methods of treating water for PFAS: Carbon and Resin. We focus on three community case studies: Stratmoor Hills, CO, Kennebunk, Kennebunkport & Wells, ME and Pownal, VT - what their specific issues were and how those issues are being treated specific to their local water chemistry.
- Learn what polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are and where they come from
- See three communities that had water contaminated with PFAS, and what solutions they used to solve the problem
