EPA recently announced that it is proposing Maximum Contaminant Levels (MCLs) for six PFAS. See our article by Corey Carpenter, PhD, PE & Emily Cook for more information on the MCLs including funding opportunities, timing for adoption, what it means for public water utilities, and more! #PFAS #environmentalconsulting #ekiconsult

About the Authors:
Corey Carpenter, PhD
|Dr. Carpenter’s doctoral research focused on emerging contaminant (including PFAS) measurement and treatment as well as chemical fate and transport in surface waters. His recent work includes leading a PFAS impacted groundwater treatment study and providing technical support for detection of PFAS in a municipal groundwater supply. Dr. Carpenter is published in peer-reviewed journals related to emerging contaminant identification, monitoring, and treatment as well as other surface water investigations.
Emily Cook, PhD
|Dr. Cook has gained extensive expertise in the properties, transformation, and applied treatment strategies of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) during graduate school. For her dissertation, she investigated the biotransformation of PFAS precursors with various source zone co-contaminants, activated persulfate chemical oxidation and mineralization of PFAS subclasses in the context of in situ treatment, and the toxicity of PFAS on in situ bioremediation processes.
