Metro Areas Weigh In on “Forever Chemicals”

What if H2O isn’t the only acronym in your water? PFAS are hidden chemicals that linger in the water supply, but many Americans aren’t aware that they exist, even after taking a big gulp of them.

To find out, WaterFilterGuru.com surveyed 1,000 metropolitan residents about their perceptions of water quality and identified the cities and states with the highest concentrations of PFAS.

Let’s look at Americans’ awareness of these contaminants in their water and uncover the tested locations with the highest and lowest concentrations.

CONCERN ABOUT FOREVER CHEMICALS IS WARRANTED IN CITIES WITH THE HIGHEST DETECTED PFAS LEVELS IN PARTS PER TRILLION (PPT), INCLUDING:

- San Luis Obispo, CA (931 ppt) - Issaquah, WA (916 ppt)

IN CONTRAST, RESIDENTS CAN REST EASY IN THIS TRIO OF CITIES WHERE PFAS CONCENTRATIONS WERE THE LOWEST:

- Sausalito, CA (0 ppt) - Los Angeles, CA (0.2 ppt) - Pueblo, CO (0.4 ppt)

INSIDER PERSPECTIVE

Over half of metro residents (67%) believe their tap water is unsafe to drink, but more than 3 in 4 residents still drink it.

The bad news is PFAS aren’t going anywhere; the good news is that it’s possible to reduce your risk of exposure.

To avoid PFAS already present in your water, you can use a water filtration system.
