Chemicals used in everyday tasks, found in everyday items, and detected in drinking water across Rockland County, now exceed newly established state contamination limits.  There is evidence that exposure to these chemicals can lead to adverse human health effects. 

Learn more about PFOAs and PFOSs – what they are, where they are found and used, and how to protect your family’s health.  Listen to a range of speakers dealing daily with these issues. 

Meeting The Challenge for Rockland’s Drinking Water (view flyer)

Wednesday, May 5, at 7 p.m. and livestreamed for all to view.  

See below for Livestreaming instructions and how to submit questions in advance. 

Last August, New York State passed its first maximum contaminant level (mcl) of 10 parts per trillion (ppt) for PFOA and PFOS—two substances in a class of thousands of persistent chemicals in the environment and in living organisms.  

Before that, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) had established health advisory levels of 70 parts per trillion (ppt)  


The Rockland Task Force on Water Resources Management, created by County Government in 2014 as a government-community organization, has assembled a panel of experts who will speak about this class of contaminants, actions being taken, and answer your questions.*
