[Press Release] Study: More than 200 million Americans could have toxic PFAS in their drinking water
16 Oct 2020 | EurekAlert
PFAS pollution is affecting even more Americans than we previously estimated. They are likely detectable in all major water supplies in the U.S., almost certainly in all that use surface water.

[Monitoring Data] Evaluation of Kentucky Community Drinking Water for Per- and Poly-Fluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS)
22 Nov 2019
Monitoring data from sampling 74 public water systems for eight PFAS compounds in the state of Kentucky.
21 Nov 2019 | WFPL
In total, PFAS were found in 41 of the 81 water treatment plants sampled. In about 82 percent of those samples, researchers found levels under five ppt. The highest levels (PFOS + PFOA at 42 ppt or sum of all PFAS at 66 ppt) were measured in Eastern Kentucky along the Ohio River in South Shore.

The highest level of any single PFAS detected in the EWG sample collected in Louisville was 22 ppt of a compound known as GenX. It is a replacement chemical for PFOA, which was used to make Teflon before U.S. manufacturers phased it out of production under pressure from the EPA. The EPA’s research has found that GenX is nearly as toxic as the PFOA it replaced, and DuPont, its original manufacturer, has provided test results to the EPA showing that GenX caused cancer in lab animals.
