Bellmawr Water Supplies Shut Down After PFNAs Found

Bellmawr Water Supplies Shut Down After PFNAs FoundThe borough of Bellmawr, New Jersey, shut down their water supplies after finding evidence of PFNAs in their water. A warning letter alerted the shutdown to residents, stating that high levels of the dangerous chemicals were detected. It is believed that the origin of the contamination stems from the remediation of the former factory that Solvay Solexis Specialty Polymers in West Deptford, New Jersey, used to manufacture their products from 1985 to 2010. Before the PFNAs were detected, the chemical quickly spread to surrounding water supplies. In Paulsboro, New Jersey, recent testing of the water revealed concentrations of up to 150 parts per trillion of the chemical. Water supplies in Bellmawr tested at 19 parts per trillion, which is above the current state standard of 13 parts per trillion.

Water contamination may impact communities near factories and other businesses that manufacture or use products that contain toxic chemicals such as PFNAs. PFNAs, which are another type of perfluorinated compound (PFC), have been used to make non-stick cookware and fire-fighting foam. They may contribute to individuals developing serious health issues with the liver, kidneys, and immune systems.
