Elevated PFAS levels prompt informational meeting at WPAS


WHITTEMORE — The Whittemore-Prescott school district will be hosting a meeting to address a recent water test by the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality that showed elevated levels of perfluoroalkyl substances in the district’s water wells.

Superintendent Joe Perrera said that the meeting, which will have representatives from the MDEQ and Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, will provide answers to district families.

Perrera said the tests showed elevated PFAS levels that were below the state’s recommended consumption guidelines. However, as a precaution the district was providing bottled water for drinking and cooking.

The meeting is scheduled for Feb. 4 at 6:30 p.m. in the W-P high school auditorium.
