Multidisciplinary Engineering Firm Honored

Barnstable, MA –  The American Council of Engineering Companies of Massachusetts (ACEC/MA) has named Environmental Partners (EP) as a 2021 Silver Engineering Excellence Award winner for their work on PFAS Treatment Across Massachusetts.

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.
