The NJ Department of Environmental Protection has been sampling 31 different public water supplies in New Jersey for the substance called PFOAs. It is the main ingredient in teflon and stain resistance substances. A water sample taken from the Brick Township Municipal Utility Authority was above the NJ guidance level but below the federal standard. DEP officials say they are now conducting follow-up tests on both the raw and finished water that goes to consumers’ homes.
