Grand Traverse Co. Community Receives Grant to Improve Drinking Water

The state awarded a grant to a Grand Traverse County community to improve its drinking water.

Blair Township got nearly $75,000 from the Department of Environment, Great Lakes and Energy.

That money will be used to connect 14 homes to Blair Township’s water system.

This goes back to the PFAS contamination we told you about last year.

That’s when several wells in the areas tested positive for the chemicals.

It was determined that it came from fire-fighting foam used during a 1995-1996 fire at Carol’s Retreading.
