PFAS treatment system to be installed at Grand Haven elementary by early 2020

A year ago, the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes & Energy (EGLE) sampled the school’s drinking water and detected a total concentration of PFOA and PFOS of 110 ppt, which exceeded the 70 ppt USEPA drinking water health advisory level. The school was immediately put on bottled water and Grand Haven Area Public Schools (GHAPS) began working to resolve the issue.
