What happened?

Our water system recently violated a drinking water standard for the sum of six per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (known as PFAS6) and we are taking a number of corrective actions. The drinking water standard is applicable to a lifetime of consuming the impacted water; however, sensitive subgroups, including pregnant or nursing women, infants and people diagnosed by their health care provider to have a compromised immune system, should consider using bottled water that has been tested for PFAS6, for their drinking water, cooking of foods that absorb water (like pasta) and to make infant formula. We are providing an alternative source of water for residents concerned about consuming water with PFAS at the Bluedrop Water Filling Stations available at no cost anytime at the following locations:

  • Randolph Residents: Located behind the Department of Public Works (DPW) Building, 6 Carlino Way, Randolph
  • Holbrook Residents: Stanney's Restaurant, 300 Union Street, Holbrook.
