Stormwater and PFAS
« All Publications

Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) have been an emerging contaminant of concern to groundwater and surface water, especially with respect to potential exposure through drinking water.

With increasing knowledge of the sources of PFAS and its persistence in the environment, there is expectation that there will be emerging needs to deal with PFAS in stormwater runoff as well. Speakers will discuss PFAS sources, a background on the many different chemical forms of PFAS, its fate and transport in the environment, site case studies, treatment approaches, and Department of Ecology's evaluation of this issue.
