According to an article in The Pioneer Press, a district judge prseiding over the 3M case has decided there is no proof anyone has been hurt by tiny amounts of perfluorochemicals, or PFCs, in drinking water.

The case against 3M was filed four years ago and claimed that traces of chemicals were found in Washington County (Minnesota) drinking water. The Pioneer Press article added, “PFCs were made by 3M starting in the 1940s. The company legally disposed of wastes containing PFCs in several landfills, a practice that ended in the 1970s.”
