HOMER PASSES PFAS TESTING! MDEQ: NON-DETECTED!
As you have probably been reading about and watching in the news lately, PFAS testing has been a major focus of Michigan’s DEQ (MDEQ). PFAS are a class of organic chemicals that are fire resistant and repel stains, oils, grease and water. They have been around since the 1950s and have been used in numerous industrial processes and consumer products, such as, fire-fighting foams, stain repellants, nonstick cookware, waterproof clothing, and fast food wrappers.
The health concerns range from affecting growth and learning to increase the risk of certain cancers.
As such, the State of Michigan has contracted out to test ALL public community water supplies and the 461 statewide schools on a well system. The Village of Homer’s water system was tested by AECOM, MDEQÂ’s contractor. The test results can be found on the Michigan PFAS Action Response Team website, www.michigan.gov/pfasresponse, and should be posted by mid-August.
A water sample had been secured the end of June and we have just recieved the analytical results. I am very happy to advise that the MDEQ reports that our PFAS test results came back: ND (Non Detected). The Lifetime Health Advisory (LHA) for the chemicals tested is 70 parts per TRILLION. To get a sense of how small this is, per the MDEQ, one part per trillion is the equivalent of one drop of water in 20 Olympic-size swimming pools!!
A copy of the letter from the MDEQ, summarizing our test results and a copy of the actual lab results are available in the office.
