Best Practices for Collecting Water & Wastewater Samples to Test for PFAS
Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are an increasing health and environmental concern in the scientific community, and that concern is escalating among industrial, municipal and regulatory audiences.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the U.S. National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the U.S. Food & Drug Administration are all good sources of information on the history, prevalence and side-effects of PFAS. The fact these sites and many others dedicate considerable space to PFAS reflects the growing alarm.
According to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration, “PFAS are a diverse group of human-made chemicals used in a wide range of consumer and industrial products. PFAS do not easily break down and some types have been shown to accumulate in the environment and in our bodies. Exposure to some types of PFAS have been linked to serious health effects. . . . Although PFAS have been in use for more than 80 years, scientific understanding and technical instrumentation needed to test for PFAS at very low concentrations began only recently."
PFAS have been linked to cancer, weakened immune systems, fertility problems and more. In 2016, the EPA guidance set a PFAS limit of 70 parts per trillion in drinking water. The agency updated its guidance in 2022, and the new limit is 0.02 ppt. In other words, PFAS are considered so toxic that the EPA wants them as close to zero as possible. Further details can be found in an article from the Harvard University School of Public Health, here.
