WHAT ARE PFAS?

In general, PFAS are a group of man-made chemicals found in:

  • Commonly used consumer products (e.g., food packaging and stain repellents)
  • Industrial chemicals (e.g., firefighting foam and commercial waxes/polishes)
  • Industrial waste and wastewater treatment byproducts (e.g., short paper fiber and biosolids)

These chemicals have been extensively researched and have been widely found in the agricultural, wastewater treatment, landfill, and stormwater systems throughout the United States and abroad. They enter the environment through air emissions, stormwater runoff, direct application, septic systems, and soil leaching to groundwater.
