The presence of Per & Polyfluorinated Alkyl Substances (PFAS) in influent/effluent wastewater samples is of growing concern. Detectable levels are on the rise, and the number of affected communities is expanding. Some of these compounds correlate with adverse health and ecological risks. It is extremely difficult to efficiently minimize the presence of PFAS to non-detectable levels. Therefore, an aggressive and continual commitment to evolving the underlying science and methods that underpin an accurate and reproducible approach to analysis is crucial. In this article we share two case studies to help illustrate.
