ITRC Publishes PFAS Fact Sheets

PFOA chem chain
The Interstate Technology and Regulatory Council (ITRC) has published the first three of six fact sheets that summarize the latest science and emerging technologies for per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS). The other three fact sheets are expected to be published in the next few weeks. The ITRC has also developed excel tables to accompany the information provided in the second fact sheet on Regulations, Guidance, and Advisories to include water and drinking water values established by states, EPA, and abroad. The fact sheets are tailored to the needs of state regulatory program personnel who are tasked with making informed and timely decisions regarding PFAS-impacted sites. The content is also useful to consultants and parties responsible for the release of these contaminants, as well as public and tribal stakeholders. The fact sheets in the series are:

  1. Naming Conventions and Physical and Chemical Properties
  2. Regulations, Guidance, and Advisories
  3. History and Use
  4. Environmental Fate and Transport
  5. Site Characterization Tools, Sampling Techniques, and Laboratory Analytical Methods
  6. Remediation Technologies and Methods
