SERDP and ESTCP have been addressing per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) in the environment for over a decade. Funded projects have focused on developing a better understanding of the occurrence, sampling, analysis, fate, and transport of PFAS at aqueous film forming foam (AFFF) impacted sites. This session highlighted recent successful SERDP and ESTCP projects addressing PFAS source zone characterization, novel analysis and identification techniques, leaching and mobility, and field-based assessment tools.
