PFAS + Newaygo County

As a Newaygo County resident, you and the 48,687 people living in your community need to stay informed about the threat posed by toxic PFAS contamination.

A quick look at the numbers in Newaygo County:

  • There are 2 sites contaminated with toxic PFAS.
  • 18% of residents are over the age of 65, and their health can be aggravated by PFAS contamination.
  • 5.4% are children, who are especially vulnerable to PFAS.

To combat the harmful effects of PFAS, we must:

  • Raise awareness of PFAS contamination in Newaygo County waterways, and conduct local events to educate boaters and swimmers of the risks associated with PFAS.
  • Recruit volunteers in key communities such as Fremont and White Cloud to get the word out about this risk to our community.
  • Raise funds to continue testing important water sources like Diamond Lake and Ransom Lake.
  • Raise awareness of potential PFAS contamination in Newaygo County waterways.
