Now On Demand: PFAS Technical & Regulatory Update for Wastewater Professionals

By Paul Jackson on Apr 26, 2022 9:00:00 AM

The U.S. EPA’s 2021-2024 PFAS Strategic Roadmap has a much greater focus on PFAS in wastewater than ever before. For example, the Effluent Limitations Guidelines (ELGs) are a tool the EPA already uses to enforce regulatory limits on pollutants in wastewater discharged into surface waters and municipal sewage treatment facilities. As noted in the roadmap, the EPA plans to use this tool to take a more proactive approach to restricting PFAS levels in wastewater discharge across several key industries.

8-Point PFAS Lab Checklist

By Paul Jackson on Jul 14, 2021 2:00:00 PM

Once UCMR 5 goes into effect in 2023, ALL public water systems serving more than 3300 people plus 800 randomly selected smaller water systems will need to begin testing for 29 PFAS (and Lithium). That is, if EPA leaves its current UCMR 5 proposal unchanged before it finalizes the rule. It’s also likely that, before UCMR 5 sampling starts in 2023, PFOA and PFOS will have federally enforceable MCLs (Maximum Contaminant Limits) for all water systems under the SDWA (Safe Drinking Water Act).
