PFAS

PFAS

Poly-fluoroalkyl substances (PFAS)

Assessment of drinking water catchments has not identified sources of PFAS that would represent a risk to South Australian drinking water supplies. Given the low risk, SA Health has advised that sampling of SA Water-supplied drinking water is not required at this time.

As a precaution, SA Water proactively investigated this matter with sampling of its non-potable recycled water and stormwater systems for PFAS. The results showed compliance with all guidelines for drinking water and are sufficient to confirm safety of these supplies in respect to PFAS.

The impact of PFAS is an emerging issue in Australia and SA Water will continue to work collaboratively with the Environment Protection Authority (EPA) and SA Health throughout this process.
