PFAS + St. Joseph County

As a St. Joseph County resident, you and the 60,789 people living in your community need to stay informed about the threat posed by toxic PFAS contamination.

A quick look at the numbers in St. Joseph County:

  • There are 4 sites contaminated with toxic PFAS.
  • 16% of residents are over the age of 65, and their health can be aggravated by PFAS contamination.
  • 6.1% are children, who are especially vulnerable to PFAS.

To combat the harmful effects of PFAS, we must:

  • Raise awareness of PFAS contamination in St. Joseph County waterways, and conduct local events to educate boaters and swimmers of the risks associated with PFAS.
  • Recruit volunteers in key communities such as Mendon and Three Rivers to get the word out about this risk to our community.
  • Raise awareness of potential PFAS contamination in St. Joseph County waterways.
