Trends and Levels of Perfluorinated Compounds in Soil and Sediment Surrounding a Cluster of Metal Plating Industries

Perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS) and perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) were the two dominant compounds in soil and sediment and a significant decreasing trend was observed for PFOS as the distance from the metal plating plants increased.
