State agencies continue investigating PFAS contamination at Rutland-Southern Vermont Airport Vermont Business Magazine May 30, 2018 The Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) and the Agency of Transportation (VTrans) continue to investigate detections of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) in groundwater in and around the Rutland-Southern Vermont Regional Airport in Clarendon, they announced in a statement early Wednesday. To date, the State has sampled 35 bedrock water supply wells and one spring in and around the Airport. Of these, 29 supply water to private residences. PFAS has been detected in 17 of the 35 water supplies, with 5 samples exceeding the Vermont Department of Health Drinking Water Health Advisory of 20 parts per trillion (ppt) for the sum of perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluorooctanesulfonic acid (PFOS). Bottled water is being offered to all users of drinking water supplies with detections of PFAS until it can be established that concentrations detected are stable and the health advisory will not be exceeded. If water supplies exceed the health advisory, users will also have a point of entry treatment (POET) system installed to effectively remove the PFAS from the water. To date, the State has installed two residential POETs, and will continue to work to install POETs at any residences where the health advisory is exceeded. … For the entire article, see https://vermontbiz.com/news/2018/may/30/state-agencies-continue-investigating-pfas-contamination-rutland-southern-vermont -- Lenny Siegel Executive Director Center for Public Environmental Oversight a project of the Pacific Studies Center P.O.
