WASHTENAW COUNTY — As the list of sites with PFAS contamination in Michigan continues to grow, the contamination in Norton Creek, which feeds into the Huron River, has reached a record-high at 5,500 parts per trillion (ppt), more than 78 times greater than the current acceptable standard. In response, state Rep. Donna Lasinski (D-Scio Township) issued the following statement:

“Every day, the number of our communities affected by PFAS continues to rise, and every day without action another family is put at risk. This is unacceptable. With the Legislature returning to session this week, I hope this latest discovery will be a wake-up call for legislative committee leaders to act on our PFAS Action Plan before this crisis gets any worse.”
