PFAS – What’s in Your Water?

October 30 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm

Free

What compounds are all around us and have been around since the 1940s? These compounds are used for stain and water-repellents, non-stick surfaces, cleaning products, fire-fighting foam, and a wide range of other products. Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are a family of nearly 5,000 human-made compounds that have become a common part of our lives. These “forever” chemicals are very persistent in the environment, don’t break down, and accumulate over time. PFAS compounds are found in our drinking water, soil, plants, animals, and people. This webinar will provide a basic understanding of PFAS. Some of the questions that will be answered include: What is PFAS? Where did it come from? Where is it found? What are the potential issues related to PFAS? This is the first of a two-part series on PFAS and will focus mainly on water related factors and concerns.
