PFAS ProjectDBS&A was recently awarded a contract to support the New Mexico Environment Department (NMED) in determining the extent of poly- and perfluoroalkyl substance (PFAS) impacts to surface water and groundwater in the vicinity of both Cannon and Holloman Air Force Bases (AFBs), located in Curry County and Otero County, New Mexico, respectively. DBS&A will assist with defining the extent of impacts and developing a remedial strategy that reduces risks to human health and the environment.

According to DBS&A Project Manager and Hydrogeologist Amy Ewing, “With our team’s background in PFAS sampling, groundwater and vadose zone science, ecology, environmental remediation, and litigation support, DBS&A is well positioned to help the NMED address the PFAS contamination. We are excited to work with NMED on this important project, and to contribute to the protection of water resources in eastern and south-central New Mexico.”
