Despite what we know about PFAS, or ‘forever chemicals,’ they are still contaminating over 57,000 locations in the U.S. alone.
These chemicals are found in and around airports, military bases, industrial facilities, large industrial farms, and waste processing plants all over the U.S. The only way to know if these chemicals are in your water or not is by testing your drinking water systems.
For instance, from 2019 to 2021, the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) performed statewide sampling of PFAS chemicals. This testing found that one out of every three drinking water systems exceeds the EPA’s recommended health thresholds for PFAS, which are all “near zero.”
In fact, based on these testing models, we have to understand these chemicals are likely underestimations of the degree PFAS has penetrated our lives.
Therefore, it’s even more important to know what’s in your drinking water. And the best way to know is to test your water regularly. Start today!
