The Michigan PFAS Action Response Team (MPART) was created as an advisory body within the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy by the Governor’s office under Executive Order 2019-03.

The Executive Order established MPART as an enduring body to address the threat of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substance (PFAS) contamination in Michigan, protect public health, and ensure the safety of Michigan’s land, air, and water, while facilitating interagency coordination, increasing transparency, and requiring clear standards to ensure accountability.

At the end of each fiscal year, MPART shares a fact sheet detailing actions taken during that time.
