Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances or PFAS are a group of 3,000 fluorinated compounds that have been widely used in commerce. Environmental regulatory standards for this group of chemicals are changing rapidly. As new information becomes available with respect to PFAS, we will share this information on this page. Do you have questions or need assistance with a PFAS issue, we can help. Dragun has practical, hands-on experience with PFAS assessment and remediation. Contact Matthew Schroeder or Jeffrey Bolin.
