Golder specialists have been working alongside peers from public and private entities to find the right solution to the challenges presented by Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS).
Water suppliers across the nation could be required to sample for manmade “forever chemicals” in an attempt to gauge just how prevalent the contaminants are in drinking supplies.
The class of chemicals called PFAS are often referred to as ‘the forever chemicals’ because they are highly persistent in the environment and will take hundreds if not thousands of years to disappear.
As we study impacts of persistent contaminants, jurisdictions are implementing standards. But Canada needs more provincial regulations.
