Water Quality, PFOA/PFOS

The Cotuit Water Commission and Water Department has previously discussed the emerging concern about these potential contaminants identified by the MassDEP in the CCTimes article of April 18th.   While we do not expect to find any evidence of PFAS or PFOS in the Cotuit water supply, we will be requesting funds for new testing in our FY2020 budget, to be voted at the District Meeting on May 29, 2019.   The contamination cited in the news article in Mashpee and Hyannis are separate and distinct parts of the Sagamore Lens of the Cape Cod Aquifer and Cotuit’s drinking water does not contain any underground flow from these areas.   We will report our test results next year to the public, upon completion.
