The Montgomery County DA's office has implemented medication drop boxes at secured local police departments throughout the County.
In 2014, the Horsham and Warrington Township Water Authorities conducted sampling in their public water supply wells, under the EPA third Unregulated Contaminant Monitoring Rule, and discovered PFAS contamination. Past use of aqueous film-forming foam (AFFF) is likely the source of the PFAS contamination on site.
In 2016, the EPA lifetime health advisory (HA) of 0.07 µg/L for PFOS or PFOA or combined PFOA and PFOS. Following the EPA lifetime HA: 1. Impacted public wells in the Horsham and Warrington public water supplies were taken off-line and filtration systems installed; 2. Private well users were provided alternative water sources (e.g. bottled water or public water connects); and 3. Site mitigation efforts have occurred.
PFAS are man-made chemicals that have been used in industry and consumer products worldwide since the 1950s. They have been used in non-stick cookware, water-repellent clothing, stain resistant fabrics and carpets, some cosmetics, some firefighting foams, and products that resist grease, water, and oil. PFAS do not occur naturally, but are widespread in the environment.
PFAS contamination may be in drinking water, food, indoor dust, some consumer products, and occupational settings. Most exposures occur through drinking contaminated water or eating food that contains PFAS. Most people in the United States and in other industrialized countries have some PFAS in their blood.
Some scientific studies suggest that certain PFAS may affect different systems in the body. More research is needed to understand, with certainty, if or how, exposure to PFAS in our water and food can affect people’s health.
· At this time, scientists are still learning about the health effects of exposures to mixtures of PFAS.
We understand that some people may want to know the level of PFAS in their blood. While tests can measure the amount of PFAS in your blood, the results won’t tell you how PFAS will affect your health now or in the future. Most people in the United States have one or more specific PFAS in their blood, especially PFOS and PFOA. Talk with your health care provider about testing. Additional information on labs that offer testing is found below.
A number of studies have been conducted to determine the efficiency of filtration devices, for point-of-use filters. The results of these studies have shown that point-of-use filters can remove trace organic compounds. Based on these studies, there currently are three general types of filtration systems that can potentially can reduce PFAS levels in water, if properly maintained: granulated activated carbon – either in refrigerator, faucet, or pitcher filters and some filtration systems installed on your water line; reverse osmosis; or granulated activated carbon used with reverse osmosis. However, it is important to ensure the systems are maintained according to the manufacturer and that your water is tested.
Global public health organization NSF International has developed a test method and protocol to verify a water treatment device’s ability to reduce perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS) to below the health advisory levels set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Consumers can find NSF International-approved devices by visiting: http://info.nsf.org/Certified/DWTU/

An Incapacitated Person may be a developmentally disabled adult or an adult who has lost the capacity to make and communicate decisions due to illness or injury. When a Petition is filed with the Court, the Court will hold a hearing to determine whether or not the Court should issue a decree declaring that a person is an Incapacitated Person and a Guardian or Guardians should be appointed.
Please contact Helen Blair Schuler, Administrator, Orphans’ Court Services, 610-278-3948, firstname.lastname@example.org, with questions about guardianship forms. Montgomery County Orphans’ Court is fortunate to be working in collaboration with the Office of Aging and Adult Services to support non-professional guardians. For more information about this, please contact Ms. Blair Schuler using the phone or e-mail above.
Please note that Guardians should seek advice of an attorney for any legal questions. Court personnel are not permitted to give legal advice.
What is the process of transferring a guardianship if the Incapacitated Person moves out of Pennsylvania?
The Orphan’s Court Division of Montgomery County, Pennsylvania has exclusive jurisdiction and is the sole authority to make decisions on guardianship related matters. If the Incapacitated Person no longer resides in Pennsylvania the guardian should transfer the guardianship matter from Pennsylvania. In the event of an emergency, it will be more expedient for the local court in the proposed state to have jurisdiction over the case. The local state court will also have greater access to information from local caregivers and medical facilities.
In order to begin the process of transferring jurisdiction, the guardian must first file a “PETITION FOR TRANSFER OF GUARDIANSHIP TO ANOTHER STATE” with this court. For your convenience, the petition can be found on the Orphan’s Court Guardianship Information web page: www.montcopa.org/2465 under the sections of Guardian of the Person and Guardian of the Estate sections. Upon receipt of the petition, this court may issue an order temporarily granting a petition to transfer jurisdiction over the guardianship, unless a hearing is deemed necessary.
Once this court issues the order granting permission to transfer the case to the proposed state, it is the guardian’s responsibility to file a petition with the proposed state requesting guardianship in their jurisdiction. Please contact the local court administrator in the proposed state. It is very important to know and follow the policies for that jurisdiction. For your convenience, we have provided links to the necessary statutes on the Orphan’s Court Guardianship Information web page: http://www.montcopa.org/2465.
Upon receiving a copy of an order accepting this proceeding in the proposed state, this court will issue an order transferring and terminating the guardianship here. Most states will grant “provisional jurisdiction,” which is sufficient for our needs. This court cannot terminate guardianship in this state until you obtain an order from the proposed state.
The process for transferring guardianship cases from Montgomery County, Pennsylvania to another state may seem complex, but it is vital if you ever need an immediate decision in an emergency matter. Though an attorney is not required to complete the transfer process, you may wish to consult a lawyer with specific questions.
A Final Decree may appoint one person as Guardian of the Person and another person as Guardian of the Estate of the Incapacitated Person, or may appoint one person to serve in both roles. The Court may also appoint co-Guardians of the Person or Estate. The Guardian of the Estate generally handles financial affairs while the Guardian of the Person handles health and life decisions.
The role of either Guardian is to represent the rights and best interests of the Incapacitated Person. The Guardian should honor the expressed wishes and preferences of the Incapacitated Person to the greatest extent possible. The Guardian must always act in the best interests of the Incapacitated Person.
