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.
