New test results show most Michigan water contains no PFAS

By  | 

LANSING, MI (WILX) -- New test results show that most water samples from across Michigan contain no signs of PFAS--the potentially dangerous man-made chemical that doesn't break down over time.

The Michigan PFAS Action Response Team (MPART) conducted the $1.9 million study last year.

Results revealed that roughly 90% of the water samples showed no detection for PFAS.

MPART said only the city of Parchment and Robinson Elementary School near Grand Haven had test results exceeding federal standards.
