     PFC Testing Options and Costs  

    There has been detections of Perfluorooctanoic Acid (PFOA) in Merrimack and Litchfield found by NH DES testing.  PFOA is a type of perfluorochemcial (PFC) that has been an an ingredient for decades in some manufacturing processes.  We are unable to test for PFOA or PFCs in-house.  We are able to accept these samples and sub-contract the testing to another laboratory.  Please call or visit Request a Test Kit for bottles.  For more information, please see the NH DES Press Release
