" PFAS (Per- and Poly-Fluoroalkyl Substances)"

Speaker: Chuck Houser, CHg, SCS Engineers

PFAS (per- and poly-fluoroalkyl substances) have become a source of concern in California and throughout the nation. PFAS is a "forever chemical," which means that PFAS compounds do not naturally degrade in the environment. PFAS compounds can be found in, among other things, cosmetics, sunscreen, new clothes, Scotchguard and other moisture repellants, Teflon (yes your pans), fast food packaging, and AFFF (aqueous film forming foam used to extinguish aircraft fires). The State Water Board has issued investigation orders to a variety of industrial facilities, including plating facilities, landfills, and airports, known to store, use, or dispose of materials containing PFAS. This talk presents a case study of the on-going PFAS investigation at the Santa Maria Public Airport in central-coastal California.

Chuck Houser is a hydrogeologist with SCS Engineers. His professional experience includes underground tanks, due diligence, clean water resources, and, you guessed it, PFAS. In his spare time (as much as he can find), Chuck fly fishes, collects minerals, and is a private pilot.
