PFAS chemicals have been found in Gaylord’s municipal drinking water.

PFAS compounds are often found in fire fighting foam, they were detected at one testing site in Gaylord’s municipal water.

High exposure to PFAS has been linked to health problems like cancer.

But the amount of chemicals found at one site in Gaylord is only a fraction of what is considered unsafe by the EPA.

The EPA says anything under 70 parts per trillion is safe, 2 parts per trillion were detected in Gaylord.

October is National Cybersecurity Month, providing an opportunity to arm consumers with information to protect themselves from cybercriminals.
