Areas of Interest

Area of Interest Introduction

These are places where an investigation is underway and no groundwater sample result has exceeded the Part 201 Cleanup Criteria for groundwater used as drinking water.

These areas are being investigated because there is  a source of nearby.  Areas of Interests may include residential well sampling adjacent to a suspected source, or other sampling that may suggest or confirm a source of PFAS. 

If on-site sampling at an "Area of Interest" results in one or more groundwater sample exceeding the Part 201 Cleanup Criteria for groundwater used as drinking water, these locations will get moved to the Michigan PFAS sites page but will still be shown on this page under the header "Areas of Interest that became a site" to retain historical record.
