Avalon + Stone Harbor News and Activities

April 19, 2024

Earth Day 2024 will be celebrated on April 22nd. The theme is “Planet vs. Plastics”

U.S. Environmental Protection Agency

On Wednesday, April 10, 2024 the EPA established national limits for six types of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances, or PFAS, in drinking water. The substances, known by the initials PFAS, are nicknamed “forever chemicals” because they barely degrade, are very heat resistant, and are nearly impossible to destroy, so they can linger for very long periods in air, water and soil. The Borough of Stone Harbor has been testing for these chemicals well in advance of the new regulation and to date, no PFAS has been detected in Stone Harbor’s water supply. The Borough will continue to monitor for these chemicals on a routine basis, however, we are confident that our water supply is safe and free of these forever chemicals. The EPA estimates that between only 6% and 10% of the drinking water systems will be affected by this regulation.
