Is PFAS from toilet paper contaminating our drinking water?
A new study published this week was showed that toilet paper is a major contributor to PFAS in wastewater.
Rural Washington State relies heavily on septic systems for sewage treatment and on ground water wells for drinking water. In voluntary testing of public water systems in Washington State, PFAS compounds have been detected in about 10% of them. Could PFAS from our toilet paper be showing up in our drinking water?
