ACEC/MA Announces Environmental Partners as a 2021 Engineering Silver Excellence Award Winner
Environmental Partners earns the award for their work on PFAS Treatment
By: PR First
Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are man-made chemicals that have been identified as an emerging contaminant in drinking water, posing negative health effects at low concentrations. Environmental Partners has been working with the Town of Barnstable install carbon filtration equipment to treat PFAS at its water supplies sites since 2015, making it one of the first systems to install such treatment in the State. As knowledge of the harmful effects of PFAS has increased, regulations have become more stringent. To proactively meet these evolving regulations, Environmental Partners designed, publicly bid, and provided construction administration services for the installation of additional PFAS treatment equipment.
The 2021 Engineering Excellence Awards were recently announced and will be celebrated at the virtual ACEC/MA Engineering Excellence and Awards Gala. The awards celebrate innovation, ingenuity, and excellence in engineering achievement.
