Long description: Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) are a broad group of several thousand man-made chemicals [1, 2], widely used in industrial and consumer applications and classed as emerging contaminants. PFASs are the subject of accelerating environmental regulatory concern globally, as a result of their detection in drinking water supplies above acceptable levels. This technical bulletin is intended to provide a short summary of this class of chemicals and highlight approaches to effectively and pragmatically manage risks and liabilities associated with PFASs impact to the environment such as soil and groundwater in the UK and globally.
