The Water Environment Federation’s new book, “PFAS in the Water and Wastewater Sectors: Fundamentals, Management, and Treatment,” is out now.
Ivan Cooper, P.E., B.C.E.E., and a Principal in CEC’s Charlotte office, is among the experts to explore the impact of this group of chemicals on water and wastewater systems.
Ivan is a water resources expert with more than 50 years of experience and the incoming chair of WEF’s PFAS Task Force, a member of American Academy of Environmental Engineers, American Water Works Association, North Carolina AWWA WEA, Water Environment Federation, and Solid Waste Association of North America.
He co-authored Chapter 17 — PFAS Leachate Occurrence and Treatment — with Stephanie Bolyard, Senior Engineer to the Assistant Secretary with the North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality.
In the chapter, Ivan and Stephanie detail PFAS leachate occurrence and provide an overview of landfill leachate management and treatment technologies.
This collection of essays brings together experts from across the water sector. From industrial wastewater to municipal water management, the book offers unique insights into the implications for human health and the growing regulatory framework surrounding PFAS.
Ivan also recently co-authored a fact sheet on water quality–based effluent limitations (WQBELs) for the power industry, published by the WEF.
