    PFAS in Rainwater: A Water Cycle Perspective

    PFAS in Rainwater: A Water Cycle Perspective

    Jeff interviews Cathy Rockwell, Sam Olney, and Matthew Jones, colleagues here at Woodard & Curran who led a study on the occurrence and concentration of PFAS in Massachusetts rainwater last fall. While prior studies have confirmed the presence of PFAS in rainwater, our team sought not only to record statewide concentrations, but also to investigate how they are influenced by different precipitation types.
