U.S. Water introduces PFAS Shield

a state-approved treatment system to remove PFAS contamination in Wisconsin’s private water systems


PFAS Shield is a comprehensive solution for whole-home and business protection against PFAS water contamination, available only from U.S. Water. This advanced filtration system effectively removes harmful PFAS from your water supply, ensuring clean, safe drinking water for you and your family. With cutting-edge technology and reliable performance, PFAS Shield provides peace of mind and superior water quality.

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.
