Guidebook for Environmental Management of PFAS at Airports

An unknown yet potentially significant number of airports have site soils, groundwater, and/or wastewater that contain elevated concentrations of one or more per-and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS). The U.S. EPA recently issued recommendations and an advanced notice of proposed rulemaking related to PFAS, and as greater attention is paid to the issue, airports are faced with a growing need to address PFAS legacy environmental contamination and prevent future PFAS problems. The objectives of this research are to compile and summarize relevant PFAS technical and regulatory information and to develop guidelines to help airports (a) assess and manage potential PFAS-related risks, (b) plan and implement remediation and treatment, and (c) monitor and maintain compliance with PFAS environmental regulations.
