Heat Related Illness

Like many others, AllenES has on-going assessment and construction work being completed in the heat of the summer. We ask for all to please be aware of the signs of heat-related illness and know the steps to take if heat-related illness should occur. CDC has developed a helpful awareness-level cheat sheet to reference.

PFAS Update

The month of June saw major developments related to per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) litigation and legislation at the state and federal level — particularly in massive settlements, proposed legislation, and the delay of the nation’s first state-level PFAS reporting requirements.

Are you prepared for PFAS regulation?  With Federal regulations for NPDES, Drinking Water and TRI already in place or proposed and expected to be finalized by the end of 2023 or early 2024, the notion of whether PFAS will impact my bottom line or health is not if but when and to what extent.  Please review the attached PFAS Emerging Contaminants Update to keep up to date on major developments.  AllenES is actively tracking these developments and has the engineering and technical resources in place to help you navigate and correct this complicated emerging problem.
