U.S. Water introduces PFAS Shield – a state-approved treatment system to remove PFAS contamination in Wisconsin’s private water systems

READ PRESS RELEASE

Amid growing concerns over PFAS contamination in water systems in several Wisconsin communities, U.S. Water emerges as a pioneering force with the introduction of PFAS Shield™ – a cutting-edge treatment system to combat this pervasive threat head-on.

PFAS, a family of synthetic chemicals commonly referred to as “forever chemicals” for their persistence, are found in everyday items like fast-food packaging, non-stick cookware, and firefighting foams.

Based on the data, researchers estimated that at least one form of PFAS could be found in about 45% of tap water samples nationwide. They potentially pose significant health risks at high concentrations, according to the U.S. Geological Survey and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

PFAS can contaminate drinking water via industrial discharges into water, air, or soil, sewage treatment plant releases, sludge land application, landfill leaching, and specific fire-fighting foam usage.

Treating Contamination in Private Water Systems

While many municipalities are beginning to treat water community water sources, homeowners are responsible for their private wells. Unlike many common contaminants, PFAS compounds are resistant to most water treatment methods.

Introducing PFAS Shield

U.S. Water’s new groundbreaking point-of-entry filter system is the first of its kind in Wisconsin to receive state certification through the Wisconsin Department of Safety and Professional Services (DSPS). Engineered by U.S. Water, this innovative system acts as a guardian for your home’s water, efficiently removing PFAS contaminants before they have a chance to enter your taps.

Our state-of-the-art technology ensures that your water remains pure and safe, reflecting our commitment to delivering cutting-edge solutions for clean, quality water throughout your entire home.

How PFAS Shield Works

U.S. Water’s PFAS Shield ensures that water is effectively treated before it enters your water system. Unlike conventional carbon media, our advanced filter media boasts larger, granular particles, providing an extended surface area, specially treated for superior adsorption. This advanced media excels in capturing a wide spectrum of contaminants, making it exceptionally effective against this challenging contaminant.

Tailored Solutions for Your Unique Needs

Residential and Commercial Solutions: Our team of experts will work with you to custom design a PFAS Shield unit to match your application and system size.

Effective filtration systems don’t have to be complicated. U.S. Water’s treatment systems are easy to understand and simple to operate. Plus, we provide reliable support throughout the lifecycle of your PFAS treatment.

Did you know that at least 45% of the nation’s tap water contains per- and polyfluorinated alkyl substances (PFAS)?

PFAS HEALTH RISKS 

Exposure to PFAS has been linked with a variety of health effects, including:

      • Higher cholesterol levels
      • Lower infant birth weights
      • Weakened immune response
      • Increased risk of some cancers, including kidney cancer
      • Liver damage
