Most of Wisconsin’s private wells have some PFAS chemicals in them, but only a few have enough to worry about.
The state’s Department of Natural Resources on Friday released the report into private well testing. The DNR says while seven-in-ten wells have some PFAS contamination, only one-in-100 have contamination above the state’s current health guidelines. The DNR also says PFAS contamination is limited to certain areas, meaning a lot of people in Wisconsin don’t have to worry about their drinking water. You can find the full report at the DNR’s website.
