Presentation Description:

In the context of hazardous waste site investigation, it is critical to understand the background contribution of constituents to determine whether a regulated release to the environment has occurred, to understand the nature, extent and risks associated with release-related constituents, and to identify appropriate cleanup levels for remediation. This concept of background is especially relevant to PFAS, a ubiquitous contaminant in the environment for which the Massachusetts Contingency Plan (MCP) has promulgated stringent criteria for soil. However, in Massachusetts, as in many states, background levels of PFAS in soil are currently not established.

This Woodard & Curran study was created to quantify typical background levels of 36 PFAS in soils across Massachusetts. The presentation will discuss study objectives, the sampling program, and findings. Results from this study will broaden LSPs’ understanding of the levels and distribution of PFAS in Massachusetts soils, as well as the larger understanding of the ubiquitous presence of PFAS across our environment.
