Filtration systems for removing PFAS from drinking water The Department of Environmental Protection recommends the use of a whole-house carbon filtration system where PFAS is present in drinking water.  To the knowledge of the Board of Health, there are two companies that provide carbon filtering in western Massachusetts (there may be others). There is a fairly wide range of services and prices. The Board of Health is  not in a position to recommend either for or against these or any other provider of filtration services.
