PFAS Technical Report Set
Included in this set are three PFAS reports:
1. AWWA’s Drinking Water Treatment for PFAS Selection Guide provides technical information on PFAS chemistry, proven technologies for PFAS treatment, special considerations when deploying these technologies in practice, and strategies for selecting treatment and design parameters. This guide was developed not only to assist systems actively addressing PFAS due to regulatory or non-regulatory drivers, but also to help water professionals better understand the challenges and considerations necessary in implementing these treatment technologies.
2. The Source Water Evaluation Guide for PFAS was developed in collaboration between AWWA volunteers and technical experts and is intended to support water professionals in understanding and characterizing the potential for PFAS occurrence in drinking water supplies. The guide provides background on PFAS characteristics and history, detailed information on the known sources of PFAS in the environment, and analytical methods and strategies for developing a monitoring plans. It also includes information about the importance of stakeholder communication throughout the process.
3. The Summary of Toxicological Research for PFAS was developed to provide water professionals with relevant toxicity research for PFAS as well as to characterize the state of that research. This report not only describes the wide-ranging efforts in the United States to better understand PFAS toxicity, but also assessments conducted by states and international agencies. This report also describes the noteworthy research gaps that exist and must be addressed.
