The NC PFAST Network tested a well in the Maysville drinking water system for 55 chemicals and found levels above the US EPA recommendation for two chemicals, PFOA and PFOS, and similar levels of PFHxS. The Network’s communications team developed this fact sheet in response to help Maysville community members understand these results.
