Use of Class 1 Hazardous Injection Wells for On-site and Off-site Management of Water with PFAS
There is a lot of interest in treatment and disposal solutions for wastewaters with PFAS contamination. The major concerns for companies and sites with PFAS include current and future regulations, capacity, cost, overall effectiveness, and liability reduction. There are many solutions in place or under consideration. The presentation will cover the role of underground injection for on-site and off-site management of hazardous and non-hazardous waters with PFAS. Class 1 Hazardous Injection wells have handled 10s of millions of gallons of PFAS impacted water. Some of the specific applications to be reviewed are wastewaters, landfill leachate, firefighting water, as well as use with concentrated residuals from on-site treatments like reverse osmosis or ion exchange. The attendee will benefit by a clearer understanding of underground injection and its low risk solution for current and potential future use in managing PFAS impacted waters.
