A study of the options for quality requirements for the application of soil and dredged material containing PFAS in fresh surface water

This report gives options for setting quality requirements for PFAS in the application of soil and dredged material and the spreading of dredged material in fresh surface waters. The starting point was to connect as much as possible with the normal land use that applies to regulated substances. The basic principle has been to align, as far as possible, PFAS with normal earth-moving activities as they apply to regulated substances. In the Soil Quality Decree and In the Soil Quality Decree and Regulations, soil and dredging spoil are classified according to three threshold values (Background value, Maximum value, Class A). (Background value, class A maximum value and class B maximum value) into three quality In the Decree and the Soil Quality Regulations, soil and dredge are divided into three quality classes and a non-applicable category on the basis of three limit values (Background value, Maximum value class A and Maximum value class B). Because the limit values in this report are primarily intended to provide a definitive action framework (DHK), the terms used in the report are not applicable. (DHK), terms have been chosen that are not the same as those used in the Soil Quality Regulations. In this way This avoids confusion about the status of the proposed options. It was decided to use the term The term re-contamination level (HVN) has been chosen instead of maximum value class A (Chapter 3) and Apply upper limit instead of maximum value class B (chapter 4).
