FY 2018 STATEMENT OF NEED
Environmental Restoration (ER) Program Area
The objective of this limited-scope Statement of Need (SON) is to address specific knowledge gaps identified in the May 2017 SERDP and ESTCP Workshop on Management of Aqueous Film Forming Foam (AFFF)-Impacted Sites. The knowledge gaps of interest are those that require collection and analysis of existing data on per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), not additional experimental work. Specifically, the goal was to address the following objectives:
The projects listed below were selected to address the objectives of this SON. Additional information on individual projects can be found by clicking the project title.
Research should lead to improved management of PFAS sites by facilitating the establishment of more cost-effective and efficient remedial action plans that are protective of human health and the environment. Addressing knowledge gaps described above will provide a basis for future research that meets critical needs in effectively managing AFFF-impacted sites.
