On April 26th a public meeting was held by the MDEQ, Mid-Michigan Health Department, and Republic Services (owners of the Pierson landfill), providing the public with an update on their findings to date on PFAS contamination found at the landfill and their course of action.
The Notice of Public Meeting showed the residential homes in a blue box that will have domestic drinking wells tested for PFAS and receive bottled water. Based on these findings, the need for expanded testing will be determined. Note that the BWL area is not part of this initial testing.
PFAS information is available at https://www.atsdr.cdc.gov/pfas/index.html.
Be assured your BWLA Board is doing all they can to initiate prudent action and prompt information sharing. This is a very “fluid” situation that your Board is heavily involved in. E-blasts are sent immediately when VIP information is received. Sign up at Contact Us if you are not already receiving the BWLA E-blasts.
