En Upstream sources of PFAS to raw water in lake Mälaren-Görväln

This month talk initiator is Frida Ekman from SVOA Stockholm Vatten och Avfall, presenting the report on mass balance of PFAS flow into the lake Mälaren-Görväln.

PFAS sources and how they spread in the water bodies

Frida presented the case study in Stockholm and method to quantify the occurrence and spread of PFASs. After the report was published, they received many responses that led to further collaborations for a deeper study including more areas of the water body. These will be available autumn 2023.
