Abstract


In this study, 42 shallow groundwater samples were collected from the study area and eleven PFCs were found in all samples. The concentrations of PFCs ranged from 5.87ng/L ~ 411404ng/L. PFOA is dominant in all PFCs and its detection is up to 100%. The source of the PFCs of the samples was quantitatively analyzed by factor analysis (FA). The results show that the pollution source is classified into 3 categories, namely the chemical source, paper mill source and textile source, with contribution rates 57.34%, 21.80%, 9, 34%, respectively.
