City of Beloit Tests Wells for Perfluoroalkyl

According to a press release from the City of Beloit, testing of city wells for perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances in the water supply had indicated that PFAS levels are significantly below recommended levels. PFAS are a large group of human-made chemicals that have been used in industry and consumer products worldwide since the 1950’s. They do not occur naturally, and are widespread in the environment. They are found in people, wildlife, and fish all over the world. The City of Beloit Public Works Department’s Water Resources Division used a third party to conduct testing on all of its wells from August-December 2021. The tests were done voluntarily to determine what – if any – impact PFAS have on the water supply. PFAS levels are not currently regulated or enforced, however, the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources is recommending the most restrictive groundwater enforcement standards be 20 ppt or less. See the full test results below:
