Samplings PFAS

PFAS (poly- and perfluoroalkyl substances) are a group of chemicals known for their unique properties and their persistence and bioaccumulation in the environment. These compounds have been used for decades in consumer products such as stain- and water-repellent fabrics, nonstick cooking products, cleaning products, and fire-fighting foams. The USEPA has provided a human health advisory for drinking water of 70 parts per trillion, and Ohio has just announced that it will begin testing for these chemicals in drinking water supplies, although “safe” standards have neither been adopted by Ohio EPA nor the Ohio Department of Health.

​EnviroScience ​subject-matter experts are carefully following changes in the science and regulation of PFAS and are available ​to help you navigate these ever-changing developments.  In addition, EnviroScience has established a strong partnership with Eurofins TestAmerica, who is the Nation’s leader in PFAS analysis, further expanding our ability to provide technical assistance.
