TAMBOER DRIVE - WELL TESTING
The Borough has been made aware of PFAS and PFOAS/PFOS in some private wells throughout town. The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection will be monitoring the situation if more positive cases are confirmed by two positive tests, and suggests that well owners read the Q&A about NJ's adoption of Maximum Contaminant Levels for PFOA and PFOS (monitoring and private well information): pfoa-pfos-faq.pdf (nj.gov) and the NJ Department of Health Factsheet on PFAS in Drinking Water (health effects): Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS) in Drinking Water (nj.gov) The NJDEP has advised that fortunately there are POET systems available for PFAs and PFOAs/PFOS, which is not the case for all well water contaminants. The NJDEP also recommends that all well owners have their well water tested every year.
