Toxic 'forever chemicals' detected in CA drinking water
OAKLAND, Calif. (KTVU) - Toxic "forever chemicals" have been detected in drinking water supplies across California, according to new reports
A review by the Environmental Working Group shows drinking water sources for 74 community water systems are contaminated with the highly toxic fluorinated chemicals called PFAS.
The affected sources serve 7.5 million Californians including parts of Pleasanton, Livermore, Dublin, and San Jose.
On Jan. 1, a new law takes effect that allows state water regulators to order more monitoring systems for the toxic chemicals.
