  5. Making Sense Of PFOA And PFOS
    6/27/2018

    In addition to the bewildering alphabet soup of acronyms associated with perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS) and perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), together known as per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) or perfluorinated compounds (PFCs), there is confusion as to how dangerous and prevalent these chemicals are, and thus how they should be treated or regulated. To help bring clarity to the issue, Pete D’Adamo, Director of Water Treatment for HDR, spoke on Water Talk with Water Online's Todd Schnick and Kevin Westerling. D'Adamo discusses the background and scope of the issue, as well as treatment methods and what to expect next. Tune in below to hear the conversation.

  10. Treatment Alternatives For PFCs
    7/4/2017

    Over the past two years, no groundwater issue has perhaps received as much community focus and attention as polyfluoroalkyl and perfluoroalkyl substances like PFOA and PFOS, often referred to as perflourinated compounds (PFCs). The U.S. EPA issued a health advisory, limiting the amount of these compounds to 70 parts/trillion which kicked off a nationwide evaluation of local water sources.
