ImpactAlpha, January 26 — Nearly 110 million Americans use water that’s contaminated with PFAS, a chemical that can cause decreased fertility, liver damage and cancer.

Danville, Calif.-based AqueoUS can remove PFAS and other contaminants in surface and groundwater and treats approximately 168 million gallons of water daily including for water districts in Los Angeles and Orange counties in California.
