Emerging Contaminants: PFAS
BB&E supported the Department of Defense (DOD) including the Air Force and ANG in the management of emerging contaminants including Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) commonly associated with aqueous film-forming foam (AFFF). BB&E evaluated Potential Release Locations (PRLs) per Air Force requirements for PFAS including perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS) and perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) which have stringent EPA health advisory limits for drinking water. BB&E completed Preliminary Assessments (PAs) at 68 ANG installations per ANG and Comprehensive Environmental Response Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA) requirements. Through BB&E’s diligent PA efforts, approximately 600 PRLs were identified at 68 ANG installations nationwide. BB&E further assisted the ANG in prioritizing of the PRLs for implementation of Site Inspections per CERCLA requirements.
