Dallas, Arlington, Frisco, Plano Dallas, Fort Worth & surrounding areas are among several North Texas cities where “forever chemicals” in the drinking water exceed newly established U.S. government limits.

Why It Matters?

Exposure to these harmful synthetic chemicals, known as per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), has been linked to serious health issues, including a higher risk of cancer.

  • Texas Impact: According to a Texas Tribune analysis, 49 public water utility systems in Texas have reported levels of these chemicals above the new limits.
  • EPA Regulations: This month, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) introduced new rules to limit five synthetic compounds in the PFAS category. Public water systems are now required to monitor their water supply for these chemicals and have five years to implement solutions to reduce PFAS levels.

 

Other affected Texas water systems include Arlington, Cockrell Hill, Duncanville, Farmers Branch, Flower Mound, Grapevine, Haltom City, Irving, Lake Worth, Seagoville, Terrell, and Weatherford, all of which have reported PFAS levels above the new standards.

So far we love our Culligan system, especially the under sink filtration system. It’s so convenient to have better than bottled-water quality water coming from the tap. The Culligan company has also been good in that when the Culligan water softener was installed in March, and two bushes died after they had to move them during installation, they paid for the replacement of those bushes.

This system is as advertised. We are happy that what has been promised has been delivered. Our clothes have remained more colorful, there hasn’t been any build up of calcium or water spots, and the taste of our water is much improved. I am additionally impressed that Culligan sent a follow up rep, Thomas Kulpa, to make sure we were satisfied and that the system is working properly. The patience and knowledge he displayed was very helpful.

We needed a new reverse osmosis system in our kitchen. Dakota explained all of the features, pricing, and gave us all the information we needed for the system. He did a great job, and I would recommend Culligan and Dakota to anyone!
