The Michigan PFAS Action Response Team (MPART) formally brings together several state agencies to investigate and remediate contamination by per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS); develop and maintain cooperative relationships among local, state, and federal agencies; advance the science; and inform and empower the public to make educated decisions.
- Michigan launched a statewide testing initiative and, by December 2018 tested all community water supplies and schools and daycares with private wells, plus tribal water systems that chose to participate. This means 7.7 million of Michigan’s 10 million residents have had their water tested for PFAS.
- In addition to providing data, MPART helps Michiganders understand what the results mean in their community and for their health.
- MPART has also made progress in investigating PFAS in other parts of the environment such as landfill leachate, wastewater treatment, biosolids, fish, and Michigan’s lakes and streams.
