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.

The Fishbeck PFAS team was retained by GHAPS to assist on selecting the best available treatment for their facility. The treatment selected was an ion exchange system specific for treating PFAS. GHAPS, EGLE, Ottawa County, and Fishbeck worked together over the last year to develop the plan that was approved in October and will soon be put into effect.
