[ARCHIVED] PFAS Water Results

This includes such products as clothing, carpets, fabrics for furniture, paper packaging for food and other materials (e.g., nonstick cookware). When discarded, PFAS has leached from these products and into water sources. While consumer products and food are the largest source of exposure to these chemicals for most people, drinking water can be an additional source of exposure in communities where these chemicals have contaminated water supplies.

On October 2, 2020, the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP) promulgated a new drinking water regulation and maximum contaminant level (MCL) of 20 nanograms per Liter (ng/L) for the sum of six per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (called PFAS6). In May 2021, all Town of Webster water sources were tested and all tests confirmed that the water was below the maximum contaminant level (MCL) of 20 nanograms per Liter (ng/L).
