  • Grayling Army Airfield (GAAF), Crawford County

    The Camp Grayling environmental staff regularly monitor a number of environmental factors at the camp and airfield to ensure safety, compliance with state and federal regulations, and to proactively detect and remedy potential problems. The most recent proactive measure was to test water samples for the presence of PFCs. A few of the samples detected PFCs at levels above EPA guidance.

  • Former Wurtsmith Air Force Base, Iosco County

    In 2012, the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) issued a "do not eat" fish advisory for all fish caught from Clark's Marsh and for resident fish in the lower Au Sable River, south of the former Wurtsmith Air Force Base. Laboratory analysis of fish from the marsh and resident fish from the river showed levels of perfluorinated chemicals (PFCs) in the fish that are unsafe for people. Migratory fish in the river are not expected to have high levels of PFCs but some have advisories due to other chemicals.
