Yarra Valley Water ran one set of tests for 50 PFAS chemicals on 25/11/15 only.

“Our routine (i.e. monthly and three yearly) environmental sampling at our STPs does not include the PFAS group of chemicals. Those regular tests focus on the highest risk chemicals from our processes. There are more than 90 Chemicals included in our routine programs…Given the significantly lower risk (to the environment and community) and high cost, these tests are undertaken less frequently (approximately every 5 years).” Yarra Valley Water December 2020
