Will these changes address PFOAs and VOCs
Yes. American Water regularly tests for these and many other types of contaminants in their water supply and has invested in technologies to remove them. In addition, South Orange will improve our local water supply by investing in a complete rehabilitation (http://www.southorange.org/574/Infrastructure-Maintenance-Projects) of Well #17 as well as installation of a GAC (granular activated carbon) filtration system to treat well water and remove the majority of contaminants including PFOA’s and VOC’s.Infrastructure Upgrades
