Folder PFAS: Sources, Contamination, Impacts


default *** PFAS in Maine Agriculture ***

The presence and persistence of PFAS contamination in soil, water and crops is an emerging national issue, and the unfolding information about PFAS in Maine is alarming, especially for farmers, whose livelihoods are connected to the land.  

Maine is on the leading edge in the country in learning about PFAS, their impacts on agriculture and human health, and in learning about how to address PFAS contamination. MFT is working closely with the state and many other partners to increase testing, research and support for Maine farmers who may be impacted by PFAS in Maine. We’ll continue to share information and resources here as they become available.
