Until the production of PFOS and PFAS happens it won't stop the pollution.  They are hard to break down and found in a lot of man made products.

News thread deals w/ drinking water, which has been treated at a plant & sent to tap. The problems w/ chemicals in the waterways are gonna remain till pfa's are no loner used. In da mitten we've been dealing w/ this since the 80's due to manufacturing & fires being put out w/ the stuff & running off into storm drains.
The do not eat fish advisors seem to come up w/ a different take on it every year.

Steidyj thank you for posting the link. I agree with Fisherman 1 and Ronnie D's comments. I live is southeastern New York around 7-8 years ago PFAS was found to be in the water supply reservoir of City of Newburgh. The source of problem was traced to our local airport and foam used in fire fighting. The foam had gotten into a water retention pond which drains into a stream which feeds into reservoir . The city's filtration plant has new equipment installed and a small filtration plant has been installed along the stream to combat the problem. Growing up in the area good chance I have the chemicals in my body . I also use some non-stick cookware and as was posted these chemicals are in many common products such as some food packaging. So in my humble opinion we all need to stay alert and do what we can to avoid contact with these and other harmful chemicals.
