Perfluorinated Compounds (PFCs) Fact Sheets

We assisted AWWA in creating a series of fact sheets that summarize available information on perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS). The EPA finalized health advisories for both compounds, which are two of the perfluorinated compounds (PFCs) that are persistent in the environment and pose a risk of developmental health effects to fetuses during pregnancy and to breastfed infants. The fact sheets are available for download on AWWA's website and cover the following topics: Treatment and Removal, Prevalence and Assessment, and Resources for Identification and Management.
