Our February speaker is Mr. Jeffrey Hale, P.G. who is a Senior Technical Consultant and Parsons' Director for Emerging Environmental Issues, providing consultation for high-risk, high-profile, and challenging environmental projects with emphasis on PFAS and other emerging contaminants.
He serves as a section leader for the Interstate Technology and Regulatory Council's (ITRC) PFAS team, and serves on the conference committee for the National Ground Water Association's (NGWA) PFAS Conference. Jeff was also selected by the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ASTDR) to serve on an expert panel focused on the fate and transport of PFAS at former Pease Air Force Base to support a national health study.
Mr. Hale will be presenting on per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) which are a unique class of organic compounds that include thousands of individual chemicals, characterized in part by carbon-fluorine bonds. These compounds are human-made and do not occur naturally. Though recognized as emerging contaminants in recent years, research on fate and transport of PFAS has been presented in scientific publications dating back more than a decade.
Each PFAS has its own unique physico-chemical properties governing environmental fate and transport. In many ways, fate and transport of PFAS in groundwater is similar to that of other dissolved organic and inorganic contaminant solutes, being governed by processes of advection, dispersion, sorption, and dilution. Examining the origin and anatomy of a PFAS plume is beneficial to a sound scientific understanding of PFAS in the environment, particulary groundwater.
