Final Report on PFAS in Drinking Water Released

Aug 23, 2019

The first of its kind in the nation, the final report from last year’s $1.7 million study reviewing samples of water supplies has been released. The Michigan PFAS Action Response Team (MPART) posted the final report, showing the test results from 1,723 communities, schools, childcare providers, and tribal water supplies. Results showed that roughly 90% showed no detection for PFAS. Very low levels of PFAS below 10 parts per trillion (PPT) were detected in nearly 7% of systems tested. PFAS levels between 10 and 70 ppt were detected in roughly 3% of systems tested. Only two systems had tests results exceeding the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Lifetime Health Advisory of 70 ppt in drinking water.
