Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) represent a vast group of synthetic chemicals that were originally designed to provide oil and water resistance to various products, including nonstick cookware and firefighting foams. Referred to as “forever chemicals,” PFAS are notorious for their extraordinarily slow degradation, taking hundreds or even thousands of years to break down naturally.
Consequently, comprehending the health effects, water and waste management best practices, and regulatory implications surrounding PFAS remains an ongoing process, introducing uncertainties for water suppliers, National Pollution Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit holders, wastewater managers, and consumers alike.
To gain a better understanding of the evolving issues and potential solutions associated with PFAS, consider joining the PBS PFAS Program.
