Participants will gain a better understanding of PFAS fate-and-transport, including air deposition transport, fate in unsaturated soil, and fate in groundwater. This course will discuss the complexities of PFAS fate-and- transport including considerations when investigating a site for PFAS contamination. The course will also review current technologies being used for PFAS treatment and remediation as well as experimental technologies and approaches currently in the research phase.
At the end of this presentation participants will be able to:
- Describe various sources of PFAS contamination.
- Explain variations in PFAS fate-and-transport as compared to better studied contaminants of concern.
- Explain the fate transport considerations that should be part of PFAS investigations.
- Describe ways in which PFAS-impacted media can be treated or remedied.
