WIth so much information in the news surrounding the large release of PFAs in Farmington this past year the Regional Water Authority proactively tested for these chemicals in the sources that they use for our drinking water. What are PFAs? Perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances are man made chemicals that have been used for decades in industiral and consumer goods. The CT State Department of Health established an advisory level for PFAs at 70 parts per tirllion (ppt). The good news is that Regional Water Authority source water is way below that level ranging from
0 to 6.8 ppt. www.rwater.com/water-quality/pfas-management
RWA also states that lead levels in the water they deliver to us are very low. However, some buildings may have old pipes or other problems that cause lead to leach into the water that you use. Please contact them if you are concerned. They have testing locations listed on their website. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org or call during normal business hours 203-562-4020. They also list some simple steps you can take if you suspect that your water may have too much lead.
