Original broadcast: Sep 26, 2017 at 1:00PM.

Perfluorinated substances (PFAS) are a growing concern in many states due to increasing occurrence and increasing concern from the public and elected officials. The Cape Fear River, a source for surface water systems in North Carolina, has been impacted by discharges of PFAS from a Chemours manufacturing plant. Dr. Detlef Knappe from North Carolina State University will present his research on both legacy (PFOA and PFOS) and emerging (GenX) PFAS in this watershed and will summarize some of the challenges with analytical methods and treatment.
