The maximum leachable PFOS+PFHxS (perfluorooctanesulfonic acid and perfluorohexane sulfonic acid) concentration in spoil is likely to be approximately 0.7 micrograms per litre (μg/L).
The proposed liner for the containment cell was found, given a 0.7 μg/L PFOS or perfluorooctanoic acid ( PFOA) leachate, to be protective of the beneficial uses of the underlying groundwater within
