sample collection

In her second Groundwater Monitoring & Remediation column of 2022, Haley & Aldrich Environmental Engineer Sarah Mass introduces new projects funded by the Department of Defense’s Strategic Environmental Research and Development Program (SERDP) and Environmental Security Technology Certification Program (ESTCP) in fiscal year 2022. These projects include many focused on developing a better understanding of the occurrence, fate, transport, and remediation of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), as well as projects aimed at addressing groundwater impacted by PFAS, 1,4-dioxane, and chlorinated volatile organic compounds.

Mass also describes the two projects that received 2021 Environmental Restoration Project of the Year recognition from SERDP and ESTCP and presents takeaways from the programs’ joint webinar “Applying Cometabolism for Treatment of Traditional and Emerging Contaminants at DOD Sites.”

Mass’ quarterly column, SERDP & ESTCP Corner—Headlines from the Environmental Restoration Program Area, provides groundwater professionals with research updates from the SERDP and the ESTCP’s Environmental Restoration Program Area.
