Cape Town Conference Presentation

In September, Fern Beetle-Moorcroft traveled to Cape Town, South Africa to present HRS’ “PFAS Transport Toolkit” as part the 50th Annual IAH Congress.

The presentation documents a series of tools HRS has developed and implemented, which focus on collecting the hydrogeologic data necessary to understand and better predict PFAS transport in an alluvial aquifer.

This toolkit includes:

  1. Implementing a sentinel well network to measure PFAS concentrations
  2. Collecting data to empirically derive input parameters for groundwater fate and transport models
  3. Choosing and implementing data collection techniques to avoid cross contamination
