Waterworks has detected both PFOS and PFOA in the treated water at levels an order of magnitude below the health advisory limit. EPA has stated that it may regulate PFOS and PFOA in the future and Waterworks will continue to monitor developments in this area. Waterworks customers can be assured that their water meets all federal and state standards for safety. We are committed to protecting public health and will continue to monitor this issue closely to stay ahead of potential health risks.
