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.
