Environmental Protection Agency Putting Together Management Plan for PFAS

The EPA is facing state and local pressure to do more about the contaminants, PFAS that keep turning up in public water systems, now across dozens of states. And here in Michigan.

The agency says it will have a national management plan for the compound by the end of the year.

The EPA is also holding listening sessions nationwide this summer focused on PFAS.

PFAS are found in firefighting foam, nonstick cookware, stain-resistant carpets, and fast-food wrappers.

Late last month we told you water tests around Blair Elementary School did not have traceable amounts of the contaminant.

That was after a nearby site became contaminated from firefighting foam used to put out a tire fire that burned for a week in the 1990s.
