PFAS Water Quality Results
Post Date: 11/01/2019
This summer, Governor Gavin Newsom signed legislation requiring water systems to notify residents if their water sources contain potentially toxic levels of cancer-linked chemicals called PFAS. The new law, AB 756, also expands testing for these man-made chemicals that have been found to not break down in the environment.
Western Heights Water Company has conducted an initial testing for these chemicals from our wells and the water quality samples did not detect any of these chemical compounds down to the part per trillion detection range. More information about PFAS can be found online at:
- U.S. Environmental Protection Agency PFAS website – https://www.epa.gov/pfas
- California Water Resources Control Board, Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS) website – https://www.waterboards.ca.gov/pfas/
Please be assured that our water meets all state and federal water quality standards. We invite you to review the Western Heights Consumer Confidence Report for detailed information about the quality of our water.
