PFAS + Isabella County

As an Isabella County resident, you and the 70,363 people living in your community need to stay informed about the threat posed by toxic PFAS contamination.

A quick look at the numbers in Isabella County:

  • There are 3 sites contaminated with toxic PFAS.
  • 11% of residents are over the age of 65, and their health can be aggravated by PFAS contamination.
  • 4.5% are children, who are especially vulnerable to PFAS.

To combat the harmful effects of PFAS, we must:

  • Raise funds to clean up the Isabella County Landfill, Roosevelt Refinery, and Mt. Pleasant City Landfill.
  • Raise awareness of PFAS contamination in Isabella County waterways, and conduct local events to educate boaters and swimmers of the risks associated with PFAS.
  • Recruit volunteers in key communities such as Mount Pleasant and Winn to get the word out about this risk to our community.
  • Raise funds to continue testing important water sources like Coldwater Lake.
  • Raise awareness of potential PFAS contamination in Isabella County waterways.
