PFAS + Muskegon County

As a Muskegon County resident, you and the 173,679 people living in your community need to stay informed about the threat posed by toxic PFAS contamination.

A quick look at the numbers in Muskegon County:

  • There are 13 sites contaminated with toxic PFAS.
  • 15% of residents are over the age of 65, and their health can be aggravated by PFAS contamination.
  • 5.8% are children, who are especially vulnerable to PFAS.

To combat the harmful effects of PFAS, we must:

  • Raise funds to clean up the Muskegon County Airport Area.
  • Raise awareness of PFAS contamination in Muskegon County waterways, and conduct local events to educate boaters and swimmers of the risks associated with PFAS.
  • Recruit volunteers in key communities such as Muskegon and Ravenna to get the word out about this risk to our community.
  • Raise funds to continue testing important water sources like Britton Lake and Mona Lake.
  • Raise awareness of potential PFAS contamination in Muskegon County waterways.
