by Sarah Craighead Dedmon

This month, Washington Academy Head of School Judson McBrine notified students and parents that the school’s water supply has tested above safe limits for Per-and Polyfluorinated Substances, known more commonly as PFAS or “Forever Chemicals.”

“Today [Nov. 17] we received water test results that showed that we had 21.9 parts PFAS per trillion parts water, which is above the state’s threshold of 20 parts per trillion,” wrote McBrine. “The federal threshold is 70 parts per trillion.”
