Worried About PFOA in Your Water?

Carcinogens in New Hampshire’s Water: More Common Than You Think

Is there PFOA in your drinking water? What is PFOA, anyway, and how does it and other carcinogens get into New Hampshire’s water systems?

PFOA is a type of polyfluorinated chemical (PFC) that was once used to make Teflon and Scotchguard coatings, as the chemical is non-stick, waterproof, and grease-proof. Even though PFOA is no longer produced in the United States due to its health hazards, small amounts of the chemical have been found in water systems all across the country. And new research shows that PFOA, even in small doses, can cause cancer, birth defects, and heart disease.

Recent testing in Merrimack and Litchfield showed levels of 17 to 820 parts per trillion after low levels of perfluorochemicals were found in tap water at a local plastics plant. An extensive, national water testing project mandated by the Environmental Protection Agency found that even the lowest level of PFOA detected was approximately five times higher than what is safe to drink.

  • George Craggy

    Jonathan, I wanted to drop a couple of lines to tell you how satisfied and happy that I chose Capital Well Co. for my water needs. From your lead man Steve to your drill people, your plumbing guy and your guy on the back hoe. Everyone that cast a shadow on my door threshold were polite, professional and willing to take the time to explain and answer my questions; which were many . Jon, it was my pleasure to meet you today and pleased that you came by for a follow up visit and explain how the heater works. SO...if I get a chance to tell everyone that needs a new well, I definitely will. It is apparent there is no "I" in your team . Thank you everyone.
  • Richard Meaney

    Mr. Swain, Thank you so much for the service Capital Well provided at my home today. I left a message with you at the behest of Ed Monty. I received a prompt phone call from Greg to arrange for a service call and to discuss what might need to be done. Promptly at (actually a few minutes before) the scheduled time, Bobby showed up to perform the service. Bobby was excellent at explaining the service, why some things were needed and how the well and pump worked, and answered all of my questions to my satisfaction. All in all, this was a very positive experience for us. Thanks to you and the people at Capital Well for prompt, courteous, and efficient service.
