Taking Action, Protecting Michigan

  • Executive Directive creates Michigan PFAS Action Response Team PDF icon

    The development and maintenance of cooperative relationships among local, state, and federal agencies is necessary for the mitigation of PFAS contamination. This directive is intended to address the need for cooperation and coordination among agencies at all levels of government charged with identifying PFAS contaminants, informing and empowering the public, and mitigating the potential effects. Particularly in view of the current lack of nationwide best practice, the directive will further serve to set a strategic and proactive approach against this emerging contaminant.
