Michigan Adopts Strict PFAS in Drinking Water Standards

Jul 24, 2020

Ending a process that began in March 2019, the Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy announced the state will adopt a ruleset creating some of the nation’s most comprehensive regulations limiting PFAS contamination in drinking water. Following 15 session days in front of the Michigan Legislature’s Joint Committee on Administrative Rules, this ruleset passed the final oversight step in the rule-making process launched by Gov. Whitmer in March 2019.

The ruleset takes effect seven days after filing with the Secretary of State and is expected to become official Aug. 3, 2020. The new rules will provide drinking water standards for public water systems to achieve.
