"MIAMI-DADE TAP-WATER WELLS WERE POLLUTED BY FIREFIGHTING CHEMICALS"
Miami New Times
Recent testing shows the groundwater at Miami Dade College's North Campus is contaminated with firefighting chemicals that pose health risks, ...
Forever chemicals do not break down naturally in the environment. PFAS contamination has been linked to several health problems, including birth defects, thyroid disruption, and cancer, according to the EPA.
Florida does not have its own PFAS safety standard and instead relies on federal guidelines, which recommend that municipalities maintain PFAS levels lower than 70 parts per trillion.
Testing conducted on seven monitoring wells on Miami Dade College's North Campus this past October, however, revealed PFAS readings far exceeding 70 parts per trillion. The on-campus well with the least amount of PFAS contained 800 parts per trillion; the well with the most PFAS contained 26,100 parts per trillion.
The state was notified of the "exceedances" shortly after the testing. Officials are expected to sample nearby private wells soon, DEP records show.
So THREE BIG POINTS pop up about this
1) Florida does not have a legal limit (MCL) for PFAS. Federal recommendation is 70 parts per trillion.
2) What are South Florida Citizens supposed to drink while waiting for "safe" ???
3) Aquathin South Florida Customers don't drink "PFAS contaminated" drinking water !!!
