Testing for PFOA in the Village of Chatham

In response to concerns of Village residents about neighboring municipalities finding high levels of PFOA in their water sources, the Board of Trustees for the Village approved having the Chatham water tested.  The results have come back and show that there is less than 0.67 parts per trillion of PFOA in the Village water source.  The EPA standard is that 100 parts per trillion is an acceptable level.  Even applying the more conservative standard of 20 parts per trillion that some states use, the Chatham water supply is well within safe levels.  The level of PFOA in the Village water supply is so low it is considered to be “non-detectable.”

The actual report from the testing lab can be found by clicking here:  PFOA Test Result
