Flint Coldwater Road Landfill

Flint Coldwater Road Landfill is a site which reflects known PFAS levels. Based on environmental and health concerns, further review and possible action may be necessary to best protect public health. More details about this location will be made available as soon as possible.

  • An initial investigation of Coldwater Road Landfill showed detections of PFOA and PFOS exceeding 70 parts per trillion (ppt) in two sample locations. The DEQ required a second, more comprehensive sampling event in June 2017 to further delineate the extent of PFAS at the facility.
  • There is a drinking water restriction at this location, and a landfill leak detection system is in place.
  • Additional sampling is scheduled for December 2017 to confirm if PFAS is moving off‑site.
  • Surrounding properties to the south and west of the facility are on a municipal water supply.
