Management challenges faced by stakeholders in regions experiencing PFAS releases were identified during stakeholder engagement events that connected attendees with PFAS experts in focus areas for fate and transport, toxicology, and regulation. Review of the literature provided perspective on challenges in all focus areas. In a case study, publicly available data were used to characterize sources of PFAS impacts in groundwater and to conduct a geospatial case study of potential source locations relative to drinking water aquifers in Rhode Island. The case study illustrates how risk-based geospatial methods can help address knowledge gaps regarding potential sources of PFASs in drinking water aquifers and evaluation of exposure risks. https://ehp.niehs.nih.gov/EHP2727/
