WESTON - City officials met in Weston on Wednesday morning to discuss new findings from PFAS testing.

The studies found that wells 3 and 4, exceeded the recommended levels of the hazardous contaminant. As a result, on March 17th, those two wells in question were taken offline.

Studies have shown that PFAS in the environment may be linked to harmful health effects in both humans and animals. These effects can include increased cholesterol levels, a decreased response to certain vaccines and reduced fertility in women among others
