In January, the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (EGLE) will hold three public hearings on its plans to set regulations for seven different types of per- and polyfluoralkyl substances (PFAS) chemicals that are likely found in your drinking water. The proposed rules will create guidelines for reducing exposure to several PFAS in drinking water. The provisions include establishment of drinking water standards, sampling requirements, public notification requirements, and laboratory certification criteria.
If you cannot attend in person, make your voice heard by submitting a public comment here! The public comment period is open through January 31, 2020.
