Perfluorinated Compounds (PFCs) in Fountain, Widefield, Security

What are PFCs?

PFCs are a family of human-made chemicals that do not occur naturally in the environment. These compounds are found in firefighting foams, coating additives and surface protection products for carpets and clothing, and other common commercial products. In Colorado, only the Security/Widefield/Fountain area detected PFCs.
