Drinking Water/PFAS

Overview

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), “Drinking water comes from a variety of sources including public water systemsprivate wells, or bottled water. Ensuring safe and healthy drinking water may be as simple as turning on the tap from an EPA-regulated public water system. Other water sources may need a water filter, a check on water fluoridation, or an inspection to ensure a septic tank is not too close to a private well.”

According to CT DPH, “Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are a family of thousands of human-made chemicals with many useful properties including the ability to repel water, prevent staining and increase heat resistance.”
