How does Hawthorne intend to comply with the new DEP Maximum Contaminant Levels for PFOA and PFOS??

The Borough engineer has been working since June to design a treatment system that will remove PFOA and PFOS from the drinking water

Bidding for construction of the treatment system will occur in March after completion of the design specifications, but must await approval of a permit by the DEP whose review of the permit application is ongoing.
