Connecting Communities

This map shows sites across the U.S. with known or suspected PFAS contamination, and where communities are advocating stronger health and environmental protections. Plug into a group working in your community, form a new group, or connect with others facing similar challenges.

Is there a PFAS contamination site near you? Use our interactive map to find out.
What should you do if you live or work near a PFAS contamination site?
  • Ask your local water supplier if they have tested the drinking water for PFAS, and whether (and how) they have reported the results to the public.
  • If you have a private well, get your water tested. See our drinking water fact sheet to learn how.
  • Being close to a contamination site does not necessarily mean your drinking water is also contaminated. If you have questions or concerns, contact your state environmental or health department.
  • Get involved with a local community group that’s working on PFAS, or start your own! If there are no groups in your state, try contacting the National PFAS Contamination Coalition—a network of community groups working to address PFAS contamination across the country. You can also contact a coalition member near you to learn more and get involved.
  • ​​​​​​If you are involved in a community organization working on PFAS and you don’t see your group listed, please send us an email at to have your group added to the map.
  • Check out our resources for more information on PFAS.
Information about contamination sites comes from the PFAS Contamination Site Tracker, a project of the PFAS Project Lab at Northeastern University.
