Bay County

PFAS + Bay County

As a Bay County resident, you and the 103506 people living in your community need to stay informed about the threat posed by toxic PFAS contamination.

A quick look at the numbers in Bay County:

  • There are 4 sites contaminated with toxic PFAS.
  • 18% of residents are over the age of 65, and their health can be aggravated by PFAS contamination.
  • 5% are children, who are especially vulnerable to PFAS.

To combat the harmful effects of PFAS, we must:

  • Raise funds to clean up the Bangor Township Landfill, Middleground Landfill, and Dow Chemical ITI Facility.
  • Raise awareness of PFAS contamination in Bay County waterways, and conduct local events to educate boaters and swimmers of the risks associated with PFAS.
  • Recruit volunteers in key communities such as Bay City and Auburn to get the word out about this risk to our community.
  • Raise awareness of potential PFAS contamination in Bay County waterways.
