What We Test

Pace® provides environmental testing services for the many aspects of the natural and built environment impacted by transportation and governed by local and federal transportation regulations.


Pace® Environmental Contaminant Testing Services

Pace® provides a wide range of environmental testing services to the transportation industry. Here are some of the more common testing services requested.

The PFAS Problem in AFFF

Businesses in the transportation industry, particularly commercial airports, are heavy users of the aqueous film-forming foam (AFFF) traditionally used to fight chemical fires. PFAS (per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances) are the chemical components that make AFFF so effective. Unfortunately, these compounds have also been shown to be toxic and highly biopersistent. While progress has been made on producing and authorizing fluorine-free foams, transportation companies are still left to deal with decades of contamination caused by AFFF used in emergencies and training exercises.

Legionella in Transportation

Legionella, the bacteria responsible for Legionnaires’ disease, presents a notable health concern within the transportation industry, particularly in environments where artificial water systems are used, such as in cruise and military ships, buses, airplanes, and trains. These systems can include potable water tanks, cooling towers, and onboard spas and showers, which, if not properly maintained, can become breeding grounds for the potentially deadly bacteria.
