PFAS + Monroe County

As a Monroe County resident, you and the 150,000 people living in your community need to stay informed about the threat posed by toxic PFAS contamination.

A quick look at the numbers in Monroe County:

  • There is 1 site contaminated with toxic PFAS.
  • 16% of residents are over the age of 65, and their health can be aggravated by PFAS contamination.
  • 5.1% are children, who are especially vulnerable to PFAS.

To combat the harmful effects of PFAS, we must:

  • Raise funds to clean up the Ford River Raisin Warehouse.
  • Raise awareness of PFAS contamination in Monroe County waterways, and conduct local events to educate boaters and swimmers of the risks associated with PFAS.
  • Recruit volunteers in key communities such as Ida and Dundee to get the word out about this risk to our community.
  • Raise awareness of potential PFAS contamination in Monroe County waterways.
