PFAS What Are They and What’s Next | October 21, 2020 | Online

Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are a family of chemicals used since the 1950s to manufacture stain-resistant, water-resistant, and non-stick products. Over time, some PFAS released from manufacturing sites, landfills, firefighting foam, and other products seep into surface soils. From there, PFAS leaches into groundwater and can contaminate drinking water. the Department of Health (department) developed draft recommendations for state action levels (SAL) for five PFAS detected in Washington drinking water. We will discuss what the State is recommending, how you may test for PFAS in your system and how the PFAS state action level could impact your system. Register…
