The Portland Press Herald and News Center Maine reported that the University of Maine plans to open a research center this year to test for harmful forever chemicals and guide the science needed to help Maine farmers dealing with contaminated wells, herds and fields.“Maine is leading the way on PFAS, but there is so much research to be done. We need to document the scope of the problem, determine its causes, and investigate solutions. To do that, we need testing capacity,” said Dean Hannah Carter of the UMaine Cooperative Extension.
