AECOM to provide enhanced support to clients in response to U.S. EPA’s latest PFAS regulatory compliance requirements

With now over 1,200 successful PFAS projects at more than 600 locations globally, the Company is advising clients through its industry-leading emerging contaminants expertise following the EPA’s finalization of its National Primary Drinking Water Regulation rule.

AECOM (NYSE: ACM), the world’s trusted infrastructure consulting firm, today announced that it is engaging with clients across the United States as they seek to respond to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) recently announced final regulatory rules establishing maximum contaminant levels (MCLs) for six per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) in drinking water.

As a leading global water, environment, and program management design firm with nearly 25 years of experience providing PFAS solutions, the Company is well positioned to extend its track record of success in supporting clients in their stewardship of the nation’s clean drinking water. AECOM boasts one of the world’s largest PFAS technical teams and is a global leader in emerging contaminant services, consistently ranked as one of the top environmental and water consulting firms.

“The EPA’s new regulations are expected to generate significant infrastructure investment across the water sector — something our teams have prepared for intensively through an unrivaled track record spanning multiple decades and hundreds of sites,” said Lara Poloni, AECOM’s president. “By continually expanding PFAS expertise across our business lines, we’re well positioned to deliver best-in-class, programmatic solutions to our clients as we expand our presence in one of our fastest growing markets.”

AECOM’s PFAS clients across the water, wastewater and industrial sectors include municipal governments, utilities, airports, manufacturers, and defense agencies. The Company offers an array of comprehensive, holistic PFAS solutions that can address client needs at each step of the mitigation process, from source identification and mitigation to water treatment and, ultimately, destruction.

“EPA’s latest standards are a bold step toward protecting individuals from the health impacts of these prevalent compounds,” said Beverley Stinson, chief executive of AECOM’s global Water business. “We look forward to providing our clients with a balanced suite of PFAS solutions, helping them mitigate risks while meeting the urgent demands for clean water in all of our communities.”

“Our PFAS expertise and market leadership position us as a partner of choice for both public and private sector clients as they meet these conservative limits,” said Frank Sweet, chief executive of AECOM’s global Environment business. “Our world-class environmental capabilities complement our engineered solutions to mitigate and remove PFAS, enabling us to support our clients in decision-making for the broadest range of PFAS solutions needed to protect human health.”

In addition to designing and implementing state-of-the-art water treatment facilities for PFAS globally, the Company’s industry-leading, patented PFAS destruction technology, DE-FLUOROTM, has been successfully employed by clients around the world. The technology utilizes an innovative electrochemical oxidation process to sustainably and economically destroy PFAS mass in contaminated liquids.
