Happy Tuesday! This week’s question will address perfluorinated compounds in drinking water. If you want to brush up on this topic, there’s a fantastic webinar you can stream, which presents challenges in extracting PFC compounds in drinking and wastewaters. If you feel that you’re a PFC expert, read on and test your knowledge!
