Contaminants of emerging concern (CECs) are believed to be detrimental to aquatic wildlife health and pose a human health risk. Existing conventional water treatment plants are not designed to remove CECs. Therefore, several advanced treatment methods, including reverse osmosis have been proposed for the removal of CECs.The paper will present two pilot studies. The first trial was conducted in collaboration with The Brunswick County Northwest Water Treatment Plant and the other in collaboration with Brackish Groundwater National Desalination Research Facility in Alamogordo, NM. The paper will present results on the removal rates of PFAS and other CECs as well as the long-term performance of the Thin Film Nanocomposite (TFN) membranes with respect to PFAS removal.
