PFAS is an acronym for chemical compounds known as per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances. These chemicals contaminated the drinking water of four Fountain Valley Communities in El Paso County, Colorado. This area is now the site of four research studies about PFAS. The research will help policy makers develop an enforceable drinking water standard. It will also help prevent and track public health conditions that may be related to PFAS exposure.
