Chemicals or PFAS

What is a PFAS?

PFAS are human-made chemicals used in many U.S. industries. These chemicals do not break down in the environment or the human body. In fact, they can accumulate over time. According to the EPA, PFAS exposure can lead to adverse health effects over time.

PFAS chemicals are a major risk in Maryland. PFAS used at nearby military bases may have caused groundwater contamination.  A test in Prince George’s County by the Environmental Working Group, a nonprofit organization, revealed a PFAS concentration of 17.8 parts per trillion. Although complying with the EPA guidelines, this number far exceeds what the group defines as a safe level. To find out if you have PFAS in your water, request a water test today.
