PFAS + Oakland County

As an Oakland County resident, you and the 1,255,340 people living in your community need to stay informed about the threat posed by toxic PFAS contamination.

A quick look at the numbers in Oakland County:

  • There are 14 sites contaminated with toxic PFAS.
  • 15% of residents are over the age of 65, and their health can be aggravated by PFAS contamination.
  • 5.2% are children, who are especially vulnerable to PFAS.

To combat the harmful effects of PFAS, we must:

  • Raise funds to clean up the Oakland County International Airport, Michigan Seamless Tube, and Electro-Plating Services.
  • Raise awareness of PFAS contamination in Oakland County waterways, and conduct local events to educate boaters and swimmers of the risks associated with PFAS.
  • Recruit volunteers in key communities such as Ferndale and South Lyon to get the word out about this risk to our community.
  • Raise funds to continue testing important water sources like Bald Eagle Lake.
  • Raise awareness of potential PFAS contamination in Oakland County waterways.
