Community Members, State Officials Address PFAS at Pellston Town Hall

Concerned Pellston community members are meeting at the Pellston Town Hall on Wednesday night to discuss dangerous chemicals found in their drinking water.

The Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy, the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, and the Health Department of Northwest Michigan have come together to address PFAS in Pellston.

The meeting comes after PFAS were detected in drinking water around Pellston.

The Health Department of Northwest Michigan says they are still waiting on lab results to determine how much PFAS are in the water.

PFAS chemicals are linked to a number of health problems including cancer and the Pellston community is looking for answers as to how they can tackle the problem.

After presentations wrap up the community will be able to ask their questions about the issue.

9&10 News will have a full report on what their concerns are, and how these agencies are responding when the meeting is over.
