Geosyntec PFAS in Surface Water Article Featured in Stormwater Journal

Brandon Steets, P.E., Rula Deeb, Ph.D., BCEEM, PMP (California), Adam Questad, P.E. (Massachusetts), and Jennifer Arblaster (Vermont), coauthored an article paper entitled "PFAS in Surface Water: The state of the practice" published in Stormwater: The Journal for Surface Water and Erosion Control Professionals on Pages 20-21 in the August 2020 edition.

Brandon Steets is a Senior Principal Engineer based in California with more than 19 years of experience specializing in National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) and Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) regulations, water quality modelling and monitoring, pollutant source investigation, and stormwater best management practices (BMP) planning and design.

Rula Deeb is a Senior Principal based in California with more than 25 years of experience focused on private practice and academia addressing the cross-media fate and transport of contaminants and the remediation of complex soil and groundwater sites impacted by non-aqueous phase liquids.

Adam Questad is a Senior Engineer based in Massachusetts focused on stormwater management and water quality compliance challenges. His projects primarily include green infrastructure siting and design, hydrologic modeling to support watershed management program and NPDES compliance, stormwater resource planning, and industrial stormwater permitting strategic planning and compliance.

Jennifer Arblaster is a Project Scientist based in Vermont with experience in ecological and human health risk assessment, sediment site characterization, bioaccumulation modeling, and evaluation of environmental quality criteria.

Stormwater has been a go-to resource for surface water quality professionals since the start of the magazine in 1999.

Article Description

Stormwater has gained increased attention as a potential migration pathway for PFAS. This article summarizes lessons learned from ongoing Geosyntec stormwater PFAS treatment projects and research, including anticipated water quality standards magnitudes, the abundance of PFAS in urban stormwater, and stormwater treatment selection and performance.
