Drinking Water and Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances
The Rutgers Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences Institute will be studying the health effects from drinking water contaminated by PFAS (per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances) in Paulsboro, NJ and other sites in Gloucester County. The study is part of a multisite study conducted by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) at 8 locations across the US. The Paulsboro PFAS Health Study is anticipated to begin in early 2021 with Rutgers Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences Institute and Rutgers School of Public Health.
