State to Update Grayling Residents on PFAS Investigation

The state is still trying find a clean drinking water source for homeowners in Grayling.

Thursday night they are meeting with residents to go over any updates in their investigation.

It comes after 17 homes in the area tested positive for dangerous PFAS chemicals.

Decades ago, those chemicals were used in firefighting foam at Camp Grayling.

Now they’ve been detected in drinking water supplies around the base.

PFAS can cause thyroid problems, cancers and infertility.

Thursday night’s public meeting starts at 6 p.m. at Kirtland Community College.

Residents can get any questions answered starting at 4:30.
