PFAS Nation: Toxic Discharges Suspected From Almost 500 Industrial Facilities Across U.S. By Jared Hayes, Policy Analyst, Scott Faber, Sr. VP of Govt. Affairs, Dave Andrews, Ph.D., Sr. Scientist and Audrey Lothspeich, GIS Analyst Environmental Working Group June 11, 2019 At least 475 industrial facilities across the nation could be discharging the toxic fluorinated compounds known as PFAS into the air and water, according to an EWG analysis of government data. EWG analyzed two online databases from the Environmental Protection Agency, as well as data from a survey by the state of New York, and identified 475 unique industrial sites that are known to produce or use PFAS, or which are suspected of using PFAS. Independent scientific research has linked low doses of some PFAS compounds to weakened childhood immunity, cancer, kidney and thyroid disease, and other serious health problems. EWG’S analysis and interactive map identifies many industrial facilities that could be discharging PFAS. Some have already been confirmed as a source of drinking water contamination, but tap water near other listed facilities may not have been tested. … For the entire release and interactive map, go to https://www.ewg.org/news-and-analysis/2019/06/pfas-nation-toxic-discharges-suspected-almost-500-industrial-facilities -- Lenny Siegel Executive Director Center for Public Environmental Oversight a project of the Pacific Studies Center P.O.
