Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluorooctanesulfonic acid (PFOS) are fluorinated organic chemicals that are part of a larger group of chemicals referred to as perfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs). The Environmental Protection Agency has established health advisories for PFOA and PFOS based on their assessment of the latest peer-reviewed science to provide drinking water systems, like CCWD, with information on the health risks of these chemicals, so we can take the appropriate actions to protect our customers.

Testing has confirmed that CCWD’s water supply is safe to drink and PFOA/PFOS were not detected during monitoring in 2013.
