The Wexford-Missaukee Career Technical Center (CTC) is located at 9901 East 13th Street in Cadillac and is part of the Wexford-Missaukee Intermediate School District (ISD). PFAS sampling started in June of 2019 as part of a statewide initiative by EGLE to study PFAS in the water supply at schools across Michigan. The PFAS compounds PFBS, PFHxA, PFHpA, PFOA, PFNA, and PFOS have been detected in the Wexford-Missaukee CTC's well at various times since sampling began. Detections have recently led to an exceedance of the drinking water standard for PFNA. There are no known PFAS releases or identified sources in the area. A second Wexford-Missaukee ISD well is located on the property (at the Administration building) and has been below MCLs for PFAS compounds. A third well is located on the property, at the general education building, and is anticipated to be sampled the week of November 29, 2021.

Groundwater flow direction at this site is unknown but may potentially be to the northwest towards the Clam River. Potential receptors include residences to the west and south of the site.
