Westford homeowners that have a private drinking water well have a limited opportunity to apply for free PFAS private drinking water well testing. The Health Department strives to obtain representative PFAS samples of private drinking water wells throughout the community.
Per-and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), are a class of chemicals that are used to make products grease proof, waterproof, and stain resistant. The chemicals are considered “forever chemicals” that can cause many serious health problems. We can be exposed to PFAS through multiple sources including Food, Water, and Fabrics.
The Westford Select Board has approved American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funding for this project. There is a limit to the amount of testing available. This project is approved for 50 residential households. Please see the following attachment with application.
