Let's talk about PFAS.

Scroll through the following scenarios to find out if proactive PFAS treatment is the right move for your utilities facilities.

Are you in one of the 12+ states with guidelines for maximum contaminant levels for PFAS?

Is your facility located near an airport?
For decades, the use of aqueous film-forming foam (AFFF), which contains PFAS and is used to fight petroleum-based fires, has been required for use at airports across the nation.
Are you near industrial or manufacturing facilities?
According to an EWG analysis, at least 2,500 industrial facilities across the nation are suspected of discharging PFAS into the air and water.
Is your facility located near a military installation?
Over 700 military sites have been identified as known or suspected PFAS discharge sources.

Here's what you need to know about PFAS.

Did you know these states have adopted or proposed health guidelines or Maximum Contaminant Levels (MCLs) for PFAS?

It's Time to Act. Kimley-Horn Can Help.

These steps can provide the best solution for your unique needs and constraints. Our PFAS experts are experienced in every phase from risk assessment to design of your final solution.


Risk assessments take into account site-specific considerations and serve as the basis for decision making.

PFAS Levels

The probability of false positives can be high during PFAS sample collection. Professional engineers familiar with PFAS sampling can determine if action is needed.

Contamination Sources

Multiple lines of evidence may be needed to identify the source(s) of contamination because of the complexity of PFAS composition and source formulations.

Treatment Options

Conduct a pilot of different configurations to find the optimal design for removing PFAS for your unique situation.

Kimley-Horn's grant-finding resource tool can identify available funds to help with your capital investment.

PFAS Treatment System


  • At 8MGD, this is the largest operating PFAS treatment system in the United States today.

  • Multiple contaminant sources required a complex treatment solution

  • The pilot test used a first-of-its-kind full-scale hybrid ion exchange GAC system

  • Project only took 18 months from pilot testing to commissioning
