PFAS Testing and Results
August 29, 2023
North Lawrence Water Authority is pleased to announce the results of our PFAS (Per-and polyfluoroalkyl substances) testing.
North Lawrence Water Authority tests did NOT detect PFAS in our untreated or treated water.
PFAS are a class of synthetic organic chemicals that contain fluorine. There are more than 3000 PFAS and many have useful properties that are used in textiles, paper, cookware, firefighting foams and electronics. They are commonly present at fire training and response sites, certain industrial facilities, landfills, wastewater treatment plants and in biosolids.
