Oppose Costly Changes to Private Well Testing Act
A new rule has been introduced by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection that requires new chemical testing parameters to the Private Well Testing Act. The new chemicals required include perfluorooctanesulfonic acid (PFOS) and perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluorononanoic acid (PFNA).

Requiring testing for these chemicals will increase testing costs by approximately $300, and treatment costs—if requested by home buyers before closing—could cost an additional $5,000. The adoption of the new rule will decrease property values, delay home sales, and cause real estate transactions to fall through in affected areas. 

New Jersey Realtors® strongly advises you to take action by letting the NJDEP know you oppose the rule proposal as it would have a negative impact on the real estate industry. Instead, ask the DEP to provide funding to address well-water quality in not only homes being sold but also all homes across the state.
