Water contamination resources for Bucks, Montgomery counties
Over the past two years, 16 public wells and about 140 private wells have been shut down by contamination from perfluorooctanioc acid and perfluorooctane sulfonate in Bucks and Montgomery counties. The former Naval Air Warfare Center in Warminster and former Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base in Horsham, along with the active Horsham Air Guard Station, are thought to be the source of the contamination. The Bucks County Courier Times and The Intelligencer have been reporting on the issue, and as a public resource, have made all of the reporting about the water contamination issue available to subscribers and non-subscribers on their websites — http://www.buckscountycouriertimes.com/news/horsham-pfos/ and http://www.theintell.com/news/horsham-pfos/. Maps of the contaminated areas have been added to the resources listed above along with recent news articles and efforts by area congressmen to fund testing and cleanup. Realtors are encouraged to reach out to specific municipalities for more information regarding water safety in areas where they may be doing business.

Wow Hannah this is a very serious water issue in Bucks and Montegomey Counties.  Excellent way to get the word out to more agents and the general public.

Good morning Hannah.

Well now I may be able to make a good comment if I know what those containment's were

Sad to say that water quality will become a larger issue for all of us as the World continues to be over-populated and paved over by developments.

A water shortage is terrifying.  Water contamination is just as bad.  You give good resources for folks in Bucks County.

Lauren Williams  I am glad you are going to let them know ..Hopefully they already do

Endre Barath, Jr. Sparkling water has been my water of choice . Since i am a single lady it is easier to carry . I do also read the labels . That being said I am also told not all water are  equal ??

James Dray  Seeing the response here it shows me how unimportant most people think water is .

Chris Ann Cleland  It is closer then we think .  People are buying into water companies . It is big business .  As Real Estate Agents it is our Business to be aware

Hi Hannah - That's very disturbing - we tend to take water quality for granted. I was surprised a few weeks ago to run across a site with detailed water quality data for all of the local water suppliers in Colorado - it was amazing how many had contaminants and weren't in compliance with standards - but I was relieved to find out that our local ones were okay.

Dick Greenberg  i went to YouTube and was amazed at the long video information on water quality  around the world and how to invest in the right companies  .Water seems to be a real commodity   .The quetion is what company to invest in .

Hannah water is a necessity for all forms of life, and unfortunately we tend to take water for granted.

Hannah,

I was also surprised about the water quality.  This is a good post that you shared that I am sure will get people looking closer at their water quality.  We are known for having very hard water here in Santa Barbara, and I do know the county and city monitor it closely.  A

George Souto  even when we brush our teeth we let the water run and waste water

Ron and Alexandra Seigel  When you have droughts in California it becomes very scary . Water quantity as well as quality is a serious issue that is ignored by most people in this country .

Thank you both for joining the conversation

Clean water is a very important issue. It is something each one of us needs to know about and hold our city officials responsible for overseeing it and making it meet acceptable standards.

Posted by Debbie Reynolds, Your Dedicated Clarksville TN Real Estate Agent (Platinum Properties) 4 months ago

Good morning Hannah.  This is valuable information for anyone living or moving to these areas.  Unfortunately, the federal government has decided to relax clean water standards requirements.  It is now up to the states and the cities.

Debbie Reynolds  This is too much responsibility for local municipalities .This should be a federal and local responsibility .This is a national health issue

Gabe Sanders  It is almost like a science fiction novel and movie .  Seems to fantastic to be true

Hello Hannah

Interesting and I sure wish someone would find a inexpensive way to filter water from the ocean.

I have heard more comments that not only wells need to be tested, but also public water as well. Good reminder to not take our water for granted.

Good morning, Hannah!

Water is so important to life, yet it is taken for granted.  With much development occuring in many areas, our water sources are being contaminated.  Hope this issue is corrected before it is too late.

Sharing your post.

Brigita McKelvie, Associate Broker  There are parts of our area where the contamination was done by the military . The results were horrid and still not corrected . You are right water is precious and should not be taken for granted
