Perfluorinated compounds levels in water

 
How do I know if levels of perfluorinated compounds in my water are above health advisory value?
 
Please review the below table to determine the level of perfluorinated compounds in your drinking water. In some cases, you will be referred to a map to locate your neighborhood specific information. Please refer to PFCs and your health for additional information. Public water systems are regulated under state and federal law and their current water quality meets all standards for regulated contaminants unless otherwise noted by *. Perfluorinated compounds are not currently regulated, therefore the presence of perfluorinated compounds is evaluated using the EPA health advisory levels.
