ANALYSIS OF PERFLUORINATED COMPOUNDS (PFCs) IN THE FOUNTAIN CREEK WATERSHED BY LIQUID CHROMATOGRAPHY TANDEM MASS SPECTROMETRY
In recent years, multiple reports and studies have been completed on toxic perfluorinated compound (PFC) contamination of drinking water, surface water, groundwater, and soil. PFCs have drawn the attention of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) due to their persistent nature and ability to bioaccumulate, biomagnify, and cause adverse health effects to humans. In response to contamination from Peterson Air Force Base (PAFB) and their use of aqueous film forming foams (AFFFs), the University of Colorado Colorado Springs Environmental PFC Impact Collaboration (UCCS EPIC) was established ...
