INFORMATION ON PELLSTON PFAS ISSUE

pfas-iconThe Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (EGLE) awarded Emmet County a $250,000 grant in July 2020 to investigate the presence of PFAS near Pellston Regional Airport following the detection of the substance in a water sample of a private residence in early 2020. A letter from Emmet County Administrator Mike Reaves was mailed out to Pellston area property owners on Dec. 22, 2020, providing an update on that investigation. EGLE has a comprehensive history of the investigation into the Pellston PFAS site available online which can be reviewed here.
