The PFAS Problem


PFAS, or per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances, are human-made chemicals known for their resistance to heat, water, and oil. They have been widely used since the 1940s in various industries, but their persistence in the environment has earned them the label "forever chemicals." PFAS have been detected globally in water, wildlife, and humans, raising concerns about health and environmental effects.

Health risks associated with PFAS include potential carcinogenicity, developmental issues, liver damage, immune system effects, and reproductive problems. PFAS's persistence in the environment poses environmental challenges, including bioaccumulation, water contamination, and soil and air pollution.

To address these risks, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has implemented the PFAS Action Plan, which includes evaluating the need for drinking water standards and promoting PFAS alternatives. The EPA has established a non-enforceable lifetime health advisory level for PFOA and PFOS in drinking water. Some states have enacted stricter regulations, and the National Defense Authorization Act phased down PFAS in military firefighting foams. Federal legislation has been proposed to further regulate PFAS and encourage safer alternatives.


Perchlorate, a chemical compound containing the perchlorate ion (ClO4-), has been a matter of concern when found in drinking water sources. It is associated with both industrial and military activities. Perchlorate is primarily linked to its historical use in rocket propellants, explosives, fireworks, and certain industrial processes, including those related to military operations. Consequently, military installations and facilities where perchlorate-containing materials were used or stored have been identified as potential sources of perchlorate contamination. The disposal, handling, and accidental releases of perchlorate-based products and waste at these sites can contribute to the presence of perchlorate in nearby soil and groundwater.

Recognizing the health risks, regulatory measures have been taken to address perchlorate contamination. In the United States, for instance, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) established interim drinking water guidelines for perchlorate in 2008 and proposed a more stringent level in 2021. The Department of Defense (DoD) works in collaboration with regulatory agencies to investigate and remediate affected military sites. Cleanup efforts focus on treating or removing perchlorate from soil and water sources to reduce potential risks to human health and the environment. These actions aim to address perchlorate contamination from various sources, including those related to military activities, in order to protect drinking water quality and ensure the well-being of communities.



Water Flowing Out Pipe

Demilitarization water treatment refers to the process of treating and decontaminating water that has been polluted or contaminated by military activities or materials, such as chemical and explosive substances. This type of water treatment is essential for protecting the environment, human health, and infrastructure in areas where military operations have occurred or where there is a risk of contamination from military-related activities.

Demilitarization water treatment is a specialized field that requires expertise in both water treatment and hazardous materials management. It is critical for minimizing the environmental and public health risks associated with military-related contamination incidents and ensuring that affected areas can be safely rehabilitated for future use.
