Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are being found across the country in the drinking water of community water supplies, residential wells, schools and daycare centers.  Where is it coming from?  Factory waste is a major source.  These “forever chemicals” don’t break down, and where PFAS-containing waste is dumped, it spreads.  In Segment III of 89.1 WEMU's five-part “Green Room” serieson PFAS, we explore a few of these sites.
