What’s next for addressing PFAS regulations and treatment?

For environmental managers at industrial sites, or utility operators whose job it is to protect our water supplies, PFAS regulations have become one of the biggest topics in water treatment today.

Because of its major health implications, the Biden Administration has proposed new regulations that would require authorities to monitor and report the presence of PFAS. Some states, including California, Michigan, Minnesota, and New York, have gone farther and have set maximum contaminant levels for certain PFAS compounds in drinking water.

One impediment to designing a PFAS water treatment plan is that nobody really knows where future regulations of PFAS will end up. A site manager could develop a PFAS plan in accordance with local regulations only to see federal regulations impose more stringent requirements.

However, while the regulatory landscape is evolving, the good news is that there are multiple existing technologies that can treat for PFAS today while planning for the future.

In the video below, John Peichel, Global Market Development Lead at SUEZ - Water Technologies & Solutions, shares suggestions on how municipal water authorities and industrial site managers can develop an effective PFAS water treatment plan in the midst of regulatory uncertainty.

SUEZ Water Technologies & Solutions has developed and introduced a range of removal and remediation technologies to address contamination in each of the industrial, military, and municipal applications encountered across the world. Our range of technologies is unmatched in breadth and capability and has the ability to be tailored to specific situations, at the lowest possible capital and operating expenditure.
