This is fabulous… just freakin’ fabulous.
This truly seems to be turning into a Pandora’s box. We know a lot of these perflourochemicals have leeched into the groundwater in Washington County, but no-one’s really sure how dangerous they are, nor how hard they will be to clean up. Having lived in Washington Country for the last seven years, I’m sure my family and I have gotten a healthy dose of this stuff from eating out, or drinking water from a filter that can’t trap this stuff. We’ve got a nice reverse-osmosis filter for drinking water now, but unless we refuse to drink water from anywhere else, we’re still going to end up as human guinea pigs for an unintended science experiment.
If you live in or near Washington county, I’d suggest getting a good water filter if you don’t already have one… that, or move. With the housing market in the tank, it’ll be much easier to get the filter.
