Could trace PFAS levels found in metro Detroit schools, cities be dangerous?

Read the full story from WXYZ.

As trace amounts of PFAS are found in more and more Michigan communities and drinking water supplies, questions remain as to whether higher standards are needed.

A bill which would lower the legally enforceable hard limit of PFAS in public drinking water to 5 parts-per-trillion has sat in the House National Resources Committee of the Michigan Legislature for 11 months.

Since then, a report from the CDC was published for public comment that indicated the minimum level of risk is roughly six times lower than the EPA standard being used across the state.

That’s important because PFAS found in water is being treated differently by a variety of entities, and that includes schools in metro Detroit.
