PFAS + Menominee County

As a Menominee County resident, you and the 22,902 people living in your community need to stay informed about the threat posed by toxic PFAS contamination.

A quick look at the numbers in Menominee County:

  • There is 1 site contaminated with toxic PFAS.
  • 22% of residents are over the age of 65, and their health can be aggravated by PFAS contamination.
  • 4.1% are children, who are especially vulnerable to PFAS.

To combat the harmful effects of PFAS, we must:

  • Raise funds to clean up the Great Lakes Pulp Company Landfill.
  • Raise awareness of PFAS contamination in Menominee County waterways, and conduct local events to educate boaters and swimmers of the risks associated with PFAS.
  • Recruit volunteers in key communities such as Carney and Wallace to get the word out about this risk to our community.
  • Raise funds to continue testing important water sources like Ann Lake and North Lake.
  • Raise awareness of potential PFAS contamination in Menominee County waterways.
