We actually asked our town for a water report on PFAS and they were able to provide one (which surprised us).

I'd wager most of us will have some contact with PFAS regardless. We're just lucky that our drinking water tested clean here

That's a relief your water is safe. Hope your garden soil, fruit trees and berry bushes are safe too.

Here's some info on getting your yard soil tested:

Thank you! We plan on gardening this year and this has been a concern. We were going to to raised beds to help, but knowing our soils condition would certainly ease the mind

Raised beds are just easier all the way around anyway, well except for installing them in the first place, but after that, easier for weeds and rodent control :-).

It might be worth getting the soil tested anyway in case roots go deeper than your raised beds and if you have kids that like to go out and play. Plus if you test early and have a problem, you can get on the list (if there's a list) for clean up assistance.
