PFAS + Iosco County

As an Iosco County resident, you and the 25,213 people living in your community need to stay informed about the threat posed by toxic PFAS contamination.

A quick look at the numbers in Iosco County:

  • There are 9 sites contaminated with toxic PFAS.
  • 28% of residents are over the age of 65, and their health can be aggravated by PFAS contamination.
  • 4.8% are children, who are especially vulnerable to PFAS.

To combat the harmful effects of PFAS, we must:

  • Raise funds to clean up the Oscoda Township Dump, Van Etten Lake, and Wurtsmith Air Force Base.
  • Raise awareness of PFAS contamination in Iosco County waterways, and conduct local events to educate boaters and swimmers of the risks associated with PFAS.
  • Recruit volunteers in key communities such as Oscoda to get the word out about this risk to our community.
  • Raise funds to continue testing important water sources like Loon Lake and Chain Lake.
  • Raise awareness of potential PFAS contamination in Iosco County waterways.
