Frequently asked questions
PFAS is a grouping of man-made chemicals, and of its many components, the two most studied are PFOS and PFOA. These chemicals were widely used in the manufacturing of popular household and packaging products in the United States, including furniture fabrics, paper food packaging, carpets, and non-stick cookware (EPA).
Because these chemicals were not properly disposed of in their heyday, they seeped into groundwater, contaminating nearby well water and wildlife.
PFAS not only affects the quality of our drinking water and health, but it also can contaminate fish and other wildlife in our region. The only way to test for PFAS is to request lab testing in your nearby area.
The current nationally recommended level of PFOS and PFOA is 70 parts per trillion (ppt). But in the state of Minnesota, this number is much less:
- PFOS (15 ppt)
- PFOA (35 ppt)
