Blog Post Teaser

The 2017 Groundwater Contamination Conference is being hosted by the American Ground Water Trust in Cincinnati, OH on Wednesday, September 13th. The event aims to address emerging contaminants, such as perfluorochemicals (PFCs), that are presenting new concerns related to health issues, remediation needs, and infrastructure costs. The major types of PFCs include: Perfluorooctane Sulfonate (PFOS), Perfluorooctanoic Acid (PFOA), Perfluorobutane Sulfonate (PFBS), Perfluorobuanoic Acid (PFBA), Perfluorohexane Sulfonate (PFHxS). Below you can find an infographic outlining the products within which PFCs are commonly found.
