Members of the Federal Remediation Technologies Roundtable convened November 7 to share approaches for sampling and characterizing sites polluted by PFAS, a class of harmful chemicals that resist degradation. Through several case studies, speakers also illustrated unique challenges to understanding the sources and extent of PFAS contamination in the field.

The Roundtable represents 10 agencies, including NIEHS, with roles in hazardous waste cleanup. NIEHS Superfund Research Program (SRP) Health Scientist Administrator Heather Henry, Ph.D., co-organized the event, held virtually and in person at the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) headquarters in Virginia.
