We just received our PFAS results from the DEQ. The results are based on parts per trillion (ppt). The Lifetime Health Advisory (LHA) level set by the EPA is 70 ppt. All three wells were tested and we only had a small detect of 11 ppt on one of our wells. The other two wells were non-detect, meaning 0 ppt.
Once we learned of this news, we immediately took the well with the slight detect offline until we can get some further guidance on how to proceed. We will be in communication with the DEQ before we take any additional actions. As we get recommendations from DEQ, we will keep you posted. The good news is that Otsego City Water is safe.
Thank you for your patience throughout this long turnaround time to get these results.
