PFAS Water Contamination and What You Can Do

PFAS (Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances) is a group of man-made, carcinogenic chemicals that have been all over modern life for years; from non-stick pans and stain-resistant carpets to packaging and waterproof clothing.

This highly toxic substance is no longer discharged in industrial water drainage – but it’s not consigned to history either.

The truth is that PFAS might be in your drinking water…so keep reading to learn more about:

PFAS in Drinking Water

EPA’s PFAS Action Plan

The EPA recently announced their PFAS action plan to target – among other things…

  • Expanded nationwide monitoring of the PFAS family of chemicals in drinking water
  • Continued enforcement actions to make safe contamination hotspots
  • Focused research into the health implications of drinking water contaminated with PFAS
  • Taking legal action to prevent future incidents of contamination

Is the EPA Doing Enough?

But is the EPA paying lip service to public concerns?

Is the “action plan” robust and far-reaching enough?

It’s a problem that natives of New Jersey are familiar with. For decades, hazardous materials from manufacturing plants have been dumped or disposed of without adequate containment, meaning that toxic substances have found their way into the public water supply.

What the “action plan” doesn’t satisfactorily address is the thing that many people are concerned about, which is ushering in a federal drinking water standard for PFAS.

Is My Water Safe to Drink?

In 2018, New Jersey created a pioneering drinking water standard for the toxic chemical perfluorononanoic acid (PFNA), setting a maximum drinking water level of 13 parts per trillion.

Despite PFAS hotspots reported across the state, proposals to rein in the risks under the Safe Drinking Water Act won’t even commence until the close of 2019, and the legislative process can take years.

The “can” for any imminent new water standards to make safe the presence of PFAS in New Jersey’s drinking water has been well and truly kicked down the road.

How to Make Water Safe to Drink

The EPA is giving with one hand and – arguably – being frustrating with the other.

So, what can people do to make sure that their family is drinking clean, safe water in the meantime?

Filter jugs and pitchers just don’t cut it. Even the most advanced models cannot tackle the highly dangerous contaminants that are rife in America’s domestic water supply. 

Bottled water carries its own health risks and is seriously bad news for the environment. And who enjoys being conned anyway?
