High levels of PFCs found in NH town's well water
CONCORD — The New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services said Friday that multiple well water results in the Windham area tested high for PFCs.
Several properties along Lexington and Ledge roads in Windham had elevated concetrations of perfluorochemicals, including PFOS and PFOA.
NHDES began testing due to the industrial use of PFCs at Central Metal Finishing Inc. nearby, and four wells tested above the quality standard.
Additional tests are being done on other well samples, and the Windham School system will allow the NHDES to investigate their water supplies, too.
