EPA Seeks Permission to Sample Private Drinking Water Wells
Posted Date:
9/22/2014
At the request of the U.S. Navy, the EPA is sampling private drinking water wells in the area of NAS-JRB Willow Grove.
Representatives from the EPA are contacting users of private drinking water wells to obtain permission to take samples from those wells.

The purpose of the sampling is to determine if levels of PFOS and PFOA are present in drinking water above the provisional HALS and if actions are necessary to ensure that people have access to an alternate water supply.

The samplings are being done at no cost to private well users and the results are expected to be available within two to three weeks. To have your well tested, please contact:
