Do you comply with PFAS regulations and testing requirements in drinking water?
On June 15, 2022, EPA issued new interim PFOA and PFOS health advisories.
Interim updated Health Advisory for PFOA = 0.004 parts per trillion (ppt)
Interim updated Health Advisory for PFOS = 0.02 ppt
Drinking water health advisories provide information on contaminants that can cause human health effects and are known or anticipated to occur in drinking water. EPA's health advisories are nonenforceable and non-regulatory and provide technical information to state agencies and other public health officials on health effects, analytical methods, and treatment technologies associated with drinking water contamination. EPA’s lifetime health advisories identify levels to protect all people, including sensitive populations and life stages, from adverse health effects resulting from exposure throughout their lives to these PFAS in drinking water. The health advisory levels are calculated to offer a margin of protection against adverse health effects. EPA’s lifetime health advisories also take into account other potential sources of exposure to these PFAS beyond drinking water (for example, food, air, consumer products, etc.), which provides an additional layer of protection.
