Bullhead City, AZ., August 14, 2023 – Bullhead City Utilities has received positive news about its
water quality. Recent water tests of samples collected from the system revealed zero per- or
polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS).
“We had three water systems tested for PFAS; Camp Mohave, Desert Foothills / Laughlin Ranch,
and Lake Mohave Highlands,” said Bullhead City Utilities Director Mark Clark. “All three systems
came back with the same results. No PFAS were detected in any of those systems.”
PFAS are a group of over 9,000 synthetic chemicals, first used in the 1940s and now found in
hundreds of products, including clothing, cleaning products, and firefighting foams. The health effects
of human exposure to PFAS in the environment are the subject of active research by the
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
“ADEQ paid for and took the samples. It was part of a testing program by EPA looking into
where PFAS is a problem,” said Clark.
“We’re happy to help the EPA with their ongoing research into the potential health effects of
PFAS found in water systems,” said City Manager Toby Cotter. “We’re even happier to learn that
there were no PFAS detected in our system.”
