Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS) and the City of Milan Water
The Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ) has begun a statewide initiative to test drinking water from all schools that use well water and community water supplies. The test is looking for a group of manmade chemicals called per-and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS). MDEQ is taking this precautionary step of testing these drinking water sources to determine if public health actions are needed.
The City of Milan’s water supply was tested by AECOM, MDEQ’s contractor. The test results can be found on the Michigan PFAS Action Response Team website, www.michigan.gov/pfasresponse. The results show that of the PFOA and PFOS tested, no PFAS were detected in the drinking water.
The City of Milan is committed to providing our customers with quality drinking water. As your water supplier, we are working closely with MDEQ to maintain the quality of your water.
For health related questions, contact the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) at 1-800-648-6942 and for information on PFAS including possible health outcomes, click here.
