Shortly following the City of Prescott announcing they shut down two wells due to positive tests for Per- and PFAS, Prescott Valley immediately tested 25 wells. Out of the 25 wells, four were found with chemicals in the water. The wells are being re-tested for accuracy and results will be consulted with the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality. The four wells are Little Pete, Lake Valley, and Quailwood Two and Three. The towns wells are interconnected so water can still be accessible during repairs or shutdowns of other wells. Per- and PFAS are not regulated by the EPA. EPA has advised that exposure to high levels of these chemicals can be harmful to humans. These chemicals can also be found in fast-food containers, pizza boxes, stain resistant coatings, some cleaning and personal care products, paint, and water-resistant clothing.
