National PFAS Contamination Coalition

Community groups fighting drinking water contamination fighting back


PFAS, or polyfluoroalkyl substances, are a large group of man-made toxic chemicals. (PFAS are sometimes also called PFCs, or perfluorinated compounds.)

In recent years, some PFAS chemicals have been found at high levels in drinking water systems around the world.

This coalition was formed following the June 2017 PFAS conference in Boston by community leaders who are concerned about the PFAS drinking water contamination in their neighborhoods in order to better support local organizing for clean water and health protection by better sharing local campaign stories, information/data/facts, and connect to experts; and to build a bigger movement of national change on these issues by working on state and national campaigns together for solutions and to build a collaborative and powerful force to take on big polluters.
