An emerging contaminant that is now the subject of evolving treatment regulations at the federal and state levels, PFAS requires advanced treatment methods for effective removal from water and wastewater. Reverse osmosis (RO) has proven effective for PFAS removal, however RO is dependent on site conditions and can prove to be a costly option.

This study in AWWA Water Science explores a first-of-its-kind pilot-scale evaluation of perfluoroalkyl acid removal and correlation to total organic carbon in a carbon-based advanced treatment process for potable reuse in Florida.
