PFAS + Macomb County

As a Macomb County resident, you and the 870,893 people living in your community need to stay informed about the threat posed by toxic PFAS contamination.

A quick look at the numbers in Macomb County:

  • There are 5 sites contaminated with toxic PFAS.
  • 16% of residents are over the age of 65, and their health can be aggravated by PFAS contamination.
  • 5.3% are children, who are especially vulnerable to PFAS.

To combat the harmful effects of PFAS, we must:

  • Raise funds to clean up the Axalta Coating Systems, and Selfridge ANGB.
  • Raise awareness of PFAS contamination in Macomb County waterways, and conduct local events to educate boaters and swimmers of the risks associated with PFAS.
  • Recruit volunteers in key communities such as Romeo and Clinton Township to get the word out about this risk to our community.
  • Raise funds to continue testing important water sources like Cusic Lake.
  • Raise awareness of potential PFAS contamination in Macomb County waterways.
