Sussex town's residents told not to drink or cook with water because of PFC contamination by Maddy Lauria Wilmington News Journal (DE) February 12, 2018 A tiny town in southern Delaware is facing a major water crisis. Residents and businesses in Blades, a Sussex County town just south of Seaford, have been told not to use their tap water for drinking and cooking after perfluorinated compounds, or PFCs, were detected in the town’s public water supply. That means people will have to use bottled water to brush their teeth, boil pasta and brew their morning coffee for the foreseeable future. Officials say it is still safe to bathe in and use for laundry. “I was really concerned from hearing this, that something like that could have happened,” said Blades Mayor David Ruff. “And not knowing how long ago it may have happened. It’s not just something that happened yesterday or the day before. It’s a natural concern, living here all my life, and never expecting anything like this.” … For the entire article, see https://www.delawareonline.com/story/news/local/2018/02/08/blades-residents-receive-bottled-water-after-pfcs-found-wells/321939002/ -- Lenny Siegel Executive Director Center for Public Environmental Oversight a project of the Pacific Studies Center P.O.
