The weekly state provides reports/maps for the PFAS sampling effort that the
State is undertaking to determine potential sites of contamination. In order to decrease exposure to PFOA and PFAS from drinking water, the EPA has established health advisory levels at 70 parts per trillion. The following key points are related to how this testing is measuring up in Jackson County concerning this effort.
At this time, none of the test results have been high enough to warrant any action by any entity. As a precaution, JCHD has reached out to the two water supplies with the very low single test results noted above to ensure their questions are answered.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call the Environmental Health Division at (517) 788-4433.. Also, the link below will direct you to the State of Michigan MPART site that has additional information concerning this
statewide sampling effort. The EPA has additional resources and information regarding testing and monitoring on a national level.
