Title: Ion Exchange Resin Solution Combines Source Area PFAS Remediation with Treatment of Public Water Supply

Presenter: Steve Woodard, Ph.D, P.E.

Date: February 25, 2021

Time: 10:35 am ET

Overview: AFCEC’s response to PFAS in groundwater at Pease included the installation and operation of a full-scale regenerable ion exchange (IX) resin system to remediate groundwater impacted by years of firefighting training activities. The IX system was selected based on the results of a comprehensive pilot test that evaluated and compared multiple technologies. In parallel, PFAS contamination was detected in the City of Portsmouth (City) public water supply and needed treatment. The City decided to run a pilot test of IX resin versus Granular Activated Carbon (GAC). The study concluded IX + GAC would be the best solution.
