Since many communities get their drinking water from ground and surface waters, protecting these sources can be key to protecting community health.
The U.S. EPA has announced several initiatives designed to assess and control PFAS contamination in groundwater and surface waters across the country.
On December 30, 2022, the U.S. EPA and Army Corps of Engineers updated the definition of what types of bodies of water qualify as Waters of the U.S. (WOTUS) and would, thereby, be subject to regulatory action under the Clean Water Act (CWA). This redefinition could expand coverage of the programs mentioned above to “relatively permanent” bodies of water that have a “significant nexus” to traditional WOTUS.
The EPA will seek to hold polluters and other responsible parties accountable for their actions and for PFAS remediation efforts. In its 2021-2024 PFAS Strategic Roadmap, 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.
Several methods are available to analyze PFAS in ground and surface waters. Pace® can help you select the right method based on matrix characteristics and the goals of your project.
