Toxic manmade chemicals, like per- and poly-fluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) and 1,2,3-Tricholoropropane (TCP), are showing up in water systems across the US. It’s not new, but it has become more common, as municipalities are now increasing mandatory testing due to new state and federal regulations. These new regulations are also resulting in tighter maximum contaminant levels (MCL) in water systems as the health impacts of these toxic chemicals are dire.
