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: email@example.com 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.

I want to get a water well drilled, but I want to make sure that I handle things properly. It makes sense that I would want to have the water tested. That way, I can ensure that my home has clean water.

The county water agency frequently offers free water testing, however these analyses normally only look for bacteriological pollutants. If your well contains other substances or chemicals that might pose a harm to your life, they won't notify you about it. A comprehensive laboratory water test that examines a sample for a wide variety of pollutants is the most thorough technique to identify the composition of your well water. Self-testing kits are useful for non-life-threatening tasks like maintaining swimming pools, but you should exercise caution when using them on your drinking water supply.
I found it interesting when you said that other problems should be addresed to recieve a safe function system. My cousin told me the other night that he was planning to have a water well in case of water shortage in their home, and he asked me if I had any idea what would be the best option for him. Thanks to this helpful article, I'll be sure to tell him that it will be much better if he consults a trusted well drilling service in town as they can provide more information about the drilling process.
