Per‐ and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are a synthetic class of chemicals receiving increased attention over their presence in the environment, their potential effects on human health, and evolving regulation. Avram Frankel, P.E., Managing Principal at Integral Consulting, has authored a new paper on PFAS published in the international journal Groundwater.
Titled “On Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances—Suggested Resources and Considerations for Groundwater Professionals,” the article summarizes suggested resources and key considerations for groundwater professionals who want to learn more about this class of compounds. The paper discusses background information, current groundwater‐related regulations, risk considerations, comparison to other groundwater contaminants, and mitigation options. A broad selection of references is also included to help readers coming up to speed on PFAS and related issues. Published by the National Groundwater Association (NGWA), Groundwater is the leading international journal focused exclusively on groundwater.
Integral is proud to continue its collaborative efforts with NGWA. NGWA has invited Mr. Frankel to speak on PFAS and on groundwater remediation at its conferences. More recently, Groundwater asked Mr. Frankel to submit a manuscript on PFAS that would be helpful to its readers.
Mr. Frankel is a professional engineer, technical expert, and program manager with more than 30 years of experience resolving environmental challenges for a wide range of clients. He has spent a large portion of his career addressing emerging contaminants of the past and present, including hexavalent chromium, perchlorate, PFAS, and 1,2,3-trichloropropane.
