Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS)
Our team is at the forefront of technical and regulatory PFAS developments. Our experts can guide you through new and complex PFAS regulations and evaluate associated risks. We can conduct environmental PFAS field sampling, assess fate and transport, evaluate toxicity levels, assist with litigation, engineer effective solutions, and help you to develop clear and concise communication materials that meet all of your technical, regulatory, legal, and stakeholder needs.
PFAS Regulatory Criteria – Drinking Water Standards
Welcome to Integral’s State-by-State PFAS Regulatory Criteria Map. We developed these interactive map resources as easy-to-use PFAS regulatory references that are current, complete, and referenced. Although other resources exist, we are not aware of any that consistently meet these criteria. The maps are a community resource. Feel free to reference them, as needed. Our goals is to keep them current and we welcome your input. We are counting on it. We plan to produce updated versions with surface water, groundwater, and fish consumption advisory data. Please sign up here to be notified when a new map goes live. Please email us if we have missed something or you have more current information.
We hope these maps are useful and look forward to hearing from you.

PFAS Assessment and Management
Our team is at the forefront of technical and regulatory developments for PFAS. Our services include multimedia environmental sampling, field sampling programs and fate and transport assessment, toxicity evaluations, litigation support, product stewardship and registration support, treatment system design and engineering, and development of stakeholder and public communication materials.
PFAS Product Stewardship
We support manufacturers of PFAS and PFAS-enabled technology in evaluating and communicating the safety of their products to regulators, academics, the scientific community, and general public. Our staff assist with product and chemical registrations in the North American and EU regulatory arenas, as well as with the identification of key toxicological data gaps and technical issues related to product safety and potential use or end of lifecycle environmental concerns.
Toxicity Evaluations and Risk Assessment and Communication
We have unique experience assessing human risk related to emerging contaminants, including design and data analysis of human serum biomonitoring studies and assessing site-specific exposure compared to national baseline levels. Our key staff are nationally known for their work in the development of emerging contaminant regulatory toxicity standards and regulatory programs, including PFAS, 1,4-dioxane and 1,2,3-TCP.
