Physicians for Social Responsibility (PSR) is releasing a new report exposing the use of highly toxic PFAS — “forever chemicals” — to frack horizontal gas wells in West Virginia. The report also highlights the use of nearly 70 million pounds of trade secret chemicals in these wells, creating the possibility of even greater PFAS contamination.

​At the webinar, we’ll cover the reports findings and discuss how residents could be exposed to PFAS. We’ll also look at what steps West Virginians can take to protect themselves.

​This webinar is hosted by Halt the Harm will and presented by Physicians for Social Responsibility (PSR) and West Virginia Rivers.
