PFAS + Delta County

As a Delta County resident, you and the 35,874 people living in your community need to stay informed about the threat posed by toxic PFAS contamination.

A quick look at the numbers in Delta County:

  • There are 3 sites contaminated with toxic PFAS.
  • 21% of residents are over the age of 65, and their health can be aggravated by PFAS contamination.
  • 4.6% are children, who are especially vulnerable to PFAS.

To combat the harmful effects of PFAS, we must:

  • Raise funds to clean up the Delta County Landfill, Escanaba Defense Fuel Supply Point, and Delta County Airport.
  • Raise awareness of PFAS contamination in Delta County waterways, and conduct local events to educate boaters and swimmers of the risks associated with PFAS.
  • Recruit volunteers in key communities such as Escabana and Flat Rock to get the word out about this risk to our community.
  • Raise funds to continue testing important water sources like Lily Lake and Pine Lake.
  • Raise awareness of potential PFAS contamination in Delta County waterways.
