Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are a group of synthetic chemicals that have been manufactured and used by many different types of industries since the 1940s. There are thousands of types of PFAS chemicals, which can be found in many different consumer, commercial, and industrial products. Drinking water may be impacted in communities where these chemicals have contaminated the water supply. Current scientific research has shown links between exposure to some PFAS chemicals and adverse health outcomes.
Using supplemental funding under the Public Water System Supervision (PWSS) Grant Program, EPA is conducting a limited, voluntary program to better understand PFAS in tribal public drinking water systems. This monitoring effort will provide information to EPA, Tribal leaders, and community members about PFAS in drinking water and, if necessary, will inform additional actions to protect consumers.
Results of PFAS sampling results can be accessed through the interface below. There are three different report options from which to view results:
- Tribal PFAS System Summary Report provides a basic report for selected PWS(s)
- Tribal PFAS Sample Location Summary Report provides results sorted by each individual sample collected
- Tribal PFAS Result Report provides a detailed report, with ability to add additional fields, for all results that match the search criteria
