Wausau is the latest community in Wisconsin to tell people to make the switch to bottled or filtered water.
The city council last night approved up to 150 thousand-dollars to buy water filters and bottled water for folks in town because of worries about PFAS contamination. The city said tests last month discovered elevated levels of PFAS chemicals in several city wells. There are no final federal guidelines for PFAS levels, and each state is setting its own. A number of Wisconsin communities have become very concerned about their PFAS levels in the past few years.
Some of them are also pushing bottled water or water filters to avoid any health concerns.
