PFAS Contamination Highlighted in New Movie, Congressional Committee

Focus Features

A movie about PFAS water contamination premiered today (Fri). “Dark Waters” tells the story of a West Virginia town where PFAS compounds from a DuPont factory poisoned area residents. As KUAC’s Dan Bross reports, the film’s star testified before a Congressional committee this week, about the unregulated chemicals, which have polluted waters at many locations across the country, including dozens in Alaska.

Dan has been in public radio news in Alaska since 1993. He’s worked as a reporter, newscaster and talk show host at stations in McGrath, Valdez and Fairbanks. Dan’s experience includes coverage of a wide range of topics, from wolf control to the Trans-Alaska Pipeline and dog mushing.
