Wolverine World Wide hopes to send filtered groundwater through the North Kent Sewer Authority system as part of the company’s plan to clean up toxic PFAS contamination at its former tannery site in Rockford.
North Kent officials say they expect to decide this summer whether to accept groundwater from the tannery, which Wolverine is promising to rid of contaminants before sending to the wastewater plant.
Wolverine wants to begin extracting groundwater by this fall.
Scott Schoolcraft, North Kent Sewer Authority director, said the system board wants to ensure Wolverine’s proposed cleanup plan completely removes any PFAS compounds and other contaminants like mercury and lead before accepting the discharge.
