PFAS Program update for Private Wells

Dear Boards of Health, Municipal Leaders, and Other Interested Parties:. This letter is to update you on the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP) Free PFAS Lab Analyses Program for Public Water Suppliers and the Private Wells PFAS Sampling Program. The Baker-Polito Administration sought and received funding from the Legislature to support testing for per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) in drinking water in both public water supplies and selected private wells to assist in characterizing PFAS levels in the Commonwealth. These programs provide the opportunity for laboratory analyses of samples from all Public Water Systems and selected private wells for PFAS at no charge.
