PFAS + Iron County

As an Iron County resident, you and the 11099 people living in your community need to stay informed about the threat posed by toxic PFAS contamination.

A quick look at the numbers in Iron County:

  • There are 0 sites contaminated with toxic PFAS.
  • 28% of residents are over the age of 65, and their health can be aggravated by PFAS contamination.
  • 4.3% are children, who are especially vulnerable to PFAS.

To combat the harmful effects of PFAS, we must:

  • Raise awareness of PFAS contamination in Iron County waterways, and conduct local events to educate boaters and swimmers of the risks associated with PFAS.
  • Recruit volunteers in key communities such as Crystal Falls and Scott Lake to get the word out about this risk to our community.
  • Raise funds to continue testing important water sources like Fern Lake and Fire Lake.
  • Raise awareness of potential PFAS contamination in Iron County waterways.
