Description During 2016, the Department of Ecology carried out a study to assess levels of per- and poly-fluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) in Washington State environmental samples. Ecology collected surface water from 15 waterbodies, effluent from 5 wastewater treatment plants, freshwater fish from 11 sites, and osprey eggs from 3 sites for analysis of PFAS compounds. Results are presented in this report, along with a comparison of 2016 concentrations to data collected in 2008.
The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
