Michigan's PFAS Response Website"The State of Michigan has recognized the prevalence of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), which the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) has classified as contaminants. These chemicals are used in thousands of applications throughout the industrial, food, and textile industries and are an ingredient in some firefighting foams, food packaging, cleaning products, and various other household items. They are incredibly stable, breaking down slowly in the environment, and are highly soluble, easily transferring through soil to groundwater.
In 2017 the Michigan PFAS Action Response Team (MPART) was created as a temporary body by executive directive to investigate sources and locations of PFAS and protect drinking water and public health. Since the 2017 Executive Directive, MPART has identified PFAS in several counties, cities, and towns throughout Michigan. Its work continues today." - Executive Order 2019-03 page
