Tests show Seaford’s water supply safe to drink


Seaford water supply is safe to drink. Last week, out of an abundance of caution, the city coordinated with DNREC and Division of Public Health to test the drinking water in Seaford to make sure it was free of perflourinated compounds, or PFCs, after the contaminates were found in the water supply in the neighboring town of Blades.

Officials say no evidence of PFCs were found in Seaford’s drinking water, and it is safe to drink and cook with. Meanwhile, Blades is still waiting on results from samples taken from their water supply now that a carbon filter has been installed to remove PFCs from their water. DNREC officials say they believe the PFCs leaked into the groundwater due to past industrial plating operations in Blades.
