AWWA Water Science Topical Collection on PFAS Analytics and Treatment
In 2022, AWWA Water Science published a topical collection of research articles focused on per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS).
Some main findings:
- Select PFAS have health consequences at very low concentrations.
- Several PFAS have been found in the environment at concentrations that raise concern.
- Treatment options for these select PFAS are few, expensive, and have limitations.
- Nontargeted analytical approaches continue to identify PFAS in drinking water sources, for which health, fate and transport, and treatment data are lacking.
