  • NGWA Press - PDF/Downloadable version

    The guidance document, created by 36 NGWA volunteers who spent 1100 hours on it over 12 months, is a comprehensive eight-part piece exploring the potentially hazardous, and widely discussed, compounds in groundwater and soil.

    According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, PFAS are a class of manmade chemicals persistent in the environment and in the human body. They are widely used to make products more stain-resistant, waterproof, and nonstick.

    NGWA published the document to identify the known science and knowledge related to per- and polyfluoroalkyl (PFAS) compounds. It summarizes the fate, transport, remediation, and treatment of PFAS, as well as current technologies, methods, and field procedures.

    The document features eight sections:
    • • Section 1 — Introduction (Click here for a free preview).
    • • Section 2 — Glossary
    • • Section 3 — Human and Ecological Impact
    • • Section 4 — Fate and Transport
    • • Section 5 — Field Sampling and Analysis
    • • Section 6 — Legal and Regulatory Issues
    • • Section 7 — Risk Communication
