In the redbox now and worth the $2. Yeah, ok, call me a geek but this is about the people in Parkersburg WV who were exposed to PFOA/PFAS by Dupont's Teflon plant. Their drinking water has 6 parts per billion, Dupont's own internal guidance said over 1 ppb was unsafe, the current EPA (late to the party and not the good guys here) standard is 0.07 ppb. Hmmmmm. edit: Oh! Keeping this music related, I forgot to add that the credits roll to Johnny Cash doing Won't Back Down with Tom Petty playing and singing backup. That's worth the $2 right there.

Had to google up that Jim Waymer article from 2018: 0.02 - 0.04 ppb in Sat Beach groundwater. Up to 4 ppb at PAFB. Importantly, none in drinking water, it comes from Cocoa's wells out west on 520. Spinkler wells, probably depends on how deep.
