(St. Paul, MN)  --  Nearly two-dozen Minnesota water systems currently have PFAS contamination that exceeds new federal limits.  

The state Department of Health released its list of the water systems affected shortly after the EPA announced the new limits this week.  

Eleven of the affected systems are in the Twin Cities area, while the rest are in communities such as Wabasha, Austin, Cloquet, Bemidji and Sauk Rapids.  

Affected water systems will five years to find ways to address the contamination and reduce it to the new federal standard.
