“In the last two years, we’ve worked with more than a dozen Wisconsin clients to monitor and treat this ‘forever chemical’ at sites across the state,” said Travis Boone, Chief Executive of AECOM’s U.S. West region. “As we continue to deliver Sustainable Legacies in partnership with our clients, we’re proud to apply our regional experience and industry-leading PFAS technical services to support this first-of-its-kind project."
The treatment system will return a municipal well to service, employing granular activated carbon filtration technology to remove PFAS that were first detected in 2017. To restore operation and introduce treatment technologies, AECOM will deliver bench scale testing for PFAS removal using Rapid Small-Scale Column Testing (RSSCT) and design for renovation of well facilities to incorporate PFAS treatment and upgrade controls, structural elements, HVAC systems, and electrical components. In addition, the project will incorporate community and stakeholder engagement as a critical part of the design process.
“PFAS contamination is one of the greatest environmental concerns of our time. As a global leader in PFAS solutions, we’re proud to work with our clients to provide wide ranging capabilities that help mitigate this prevalent and persistent threat,” said Rosa Gwinn, Vice President and Global PFAS Technical Lead with AECOM.
