Water Quality and PFAs

Our High Point Water Quality Study is still on-going. Some preliminary results point to a few possible contaminants: While 4% of homes were in the high range for lead, 31% of homes showed some level of lead contamination. Lead at any level is harmful for children. Chromium was found to be higher than the “safe” level of 1 ppm in 57% of homes. Nitrates were found at a higher than safe level in 21% of homes. We will release final results of this project in a few weeks when all of our samples have been collected.

This preliminary interactive map may be used to explore potentially contributing factors that impact water quality in Greensboro. Also available as independent app at https://tinyurl.com/WQGSO
