A test conducted by the Guardian and Consumer Reports found out that the town’s water in Pittsboro, North Carolina, was contaminated with polyfluoroalkyl substances, or PFAS. PFAS is also known as “forever chemicals,” which is composed of around 5,000 manmade compounds usually found in everyday products, including food packaging, firefighting foam, and so much more.
