PFAS testing in Isabella County
MOUNT PLEASANT, Mich. – Isabella County is testing for PFAS in Mt. Pleasant, Union Township and the Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe, according to a Mt. Pleasant newsletter Friday morning.
Each area is being investigated this week By the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality.
It will take four to six weeks for test results to come back.
Right now, the MDEQ is looking at sites across the state.
PFAS are toxic chemicals found in firefighting foam, nonstick cookware, food wrappers and some household products.
They can leach into water and be harmful.
Mt. Pleasant city officials say you can drink your water if you live in Isabella county or drink bottled water if you're concerned.
