« All Publications

"PFAS FUSS: When (Not If) You Find PFAS at Your Property, What Should You Do? An Overview of Current Regulatory Efforts to Address PFAS Chemicals" focused on how per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are a broad class of fluorine-containing synthetic chemicals that are part of a growing list of "emerging contaminants," which have recently received increased regulatory and public attention, including in the southeastern U.S.

Manufacturers and utilities in northeast Alabama, northwest Georgia, Tennessee, and North Carolina; military installations throughout the Southeast; and the local communities in these areas are all faced with challenges related to PFAS compounds. The panel will presented a brief introduction to PFAS issues and mainly focused on the treatment challenges for removing these compounds from wastewater, impacted groundwater, and drinking water.
