PFAS Expertise

DBS&A’s team of scientific experts and environmental professionals have experience in conducting poly- and perfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) investigations ranging from field investigations to fate and transport modeling. Our staff has the expertise to quantitatively and systematically determine the extent of PFAS impacts to groundwater, soils, and sediment, and to assist clients in the selection of a PFAS remedy that reduces risks to human health and the environment.

Our first PFAS investigation was in 2002, and since that time we have supported PFAS investigations in Arizona, California, Michigan, New Mexico, and West Virginia. DBS&A staff has provided expertise in support of litigation on several PFAS matters, supported several municipalities in delineating PFAS contamination, have lectured on PFAS forensics methodology to several groups including Law Seminars International (LSI), the National Groundwater Association (NGWA) and American Groundwater Trust (AGWT), and are members of the NGWA PFAS Working Group.

For more than 30 years, DBS&A has provided environmental services, including conducting hydrogeologic investigations, characterizing soil and groundwater contamination, contaminant source and fate and transport investigations, remediation of contaminated groundwater and soil, landfill engineering, and providing water resources services, such as water rights analysis, and water supply development and planning, including in support of litigation.
