PFAS compounds were detected in groundwater at a former industrial facility during a due diligence environmental investigation. A hydrogeologic evaluation was conducted to identify if the detected concentrations were a result of regional background conditions, a specific release upgradient of the site, or a release on the site. Brickhouse’s specialized operating procedures for PFAS sampling and a QA/QC program were utilized to ensure that lab results were not negatively influenced by sampling and/or laboratory equipment or procedures. Brickhouse continues to work with site ownership, Buyers, and the PADEP to gain relief of cleanup liability for the PFAS groundwater impacts through the State’s Land Recycling (Act 2) Program.
