The use of per- and poly-fluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) in numerous industrial, commercial, and military applications has resulted in their widespread distribution in the environment. Research reports have demonstrated that PFAS are present in the atmosphere, surface water, sediment, soil, groundwater, treated wastewater, biosolids, landfill leachate, and drinking water. This presentation will briefly discuss the nature, sources, and properties of PFAS, their transport, and fate in the environment, with example case studies.
