PLAINFIELD TOWNSHIP — Some residents in northern Kent County are drinking water with a lot less PFAS in it, Plainfield Township officials said.
A new filtration system made of coal and sand is clearing most of the likely carcinogen from Plainfield Township's municipal water, according to Director of Public Services Rick Solle.
The township says tests showed the filters cut PFAS levels from 7.1 parts per trillion to 2.1 ppt. That's far below the state limit of 70 ppt.
The plant serves about 40,000 people in the township and a few neighboring communities.
