PFAS INFORMATION & RESULTS

 

Cherokee Metropolitan District was one of 400 water systems that took part in the CDPHE 2020 PFAs Sampling Project. Some PFAS compounds were detected but were well below the EPA’s health advisory level.  The results of the study can be found at this address:

The Perfluoroalkyle substances, also known as PFAS (specifically the main two Perfluoro-1-octanesulfonate and Perfluoro-n-octanoic acid) were tested for during the time Security, Colorado and many other water departments across the country were seeing high PFAS results in the water.

The results of the water testing performed by Cherokee Metropolitan District did not show any detection of the PFAS compounds (see testing results below). The District has recently performed another round of testing as suggested by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, CDPHE, and are awaiting the results.
