The U.S. Environmental Agency (EPA) periodically requires public drinking water systems that serve more than 10,000 people to sample for selected contaminants of emerging concern and uses the information to regulate contaminants in the future under the federal Safe Drinking Water Act. In October 2015, EPA released the latest results from its national sampling program. Data indicated that samples from public water sources tests taken southeast of Colorado Springs near Fountain Creek and Windmill Gulch, detected Perfluorinated Compounds (PFCs).
