Great news! Michigan has finalized bold new rules to help protect Michiganders from dangerous chemicals known as PFAS.
And these protections couldn’t come at a more critical time. PFAS chemicals have been linked to serious health risks like immune system dysfunction, cancer, liver damage, and harm to developing fetuses, infants, and children, often at extremely low levels of exposure. And they’ve been found in the drinking water of over 1.9 million Michiganders.
But Michigan’s new rules would help reduce exposure to these chemicals in a big way, especially among vulnerable populations. And they’re some of the strongest and most health-protective standards against PFAS chemicals in the nation.
Please take a minute to thank Governor Gretchen Whitmer for her leadership in protecting Michigan's drinking water from toxic PFAS chemicals!
