PFAS Water Testing and Alternative Water Supply

PLEASE NOTE: On August 3, 2018, the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) notified District Health Department No. 4  (DHD4) that the NSF Certified AquaSana water filtration system is the only alternate water option available to residents at this time.  For residents that have an in-home water cooler, once the initial allotment of funds has depleted, the homeowner can next choose to have an in home filtration system installed.

November 1, 2018 – Residents who are concerned about PFAS who are not in designated testing areas can now have their well water tested themselves. Michigan PFAS Action Response Team has provided a PFAS Sampling Guidance on the Michigan PFAS Response webpage. The Guidance includes costs for analysis, phone numbers for the labs and other pertinent information. The residential information is under the Residential Guidance Documents header.
