LANSING, MI (MPRN)-- Michigan will move on its own to establish state drinking water standards for PFAS chemicals.
That order came Tuesday from Governor Gretchen Whitmer.
Whitmer has ordered the state Department of Environmental Quality to come up with rules due to foot-dragging at the EPA.
Scott Dean is with the state Department of Environmental Quality.
“This is still quite a new area for a number of states,” he says. “In fact, most states don’t have any type of drinking water standards, nor does EPA, when it comes to PFAS.”
