PFAS and the Health of the Huron River

Tuesday, December 18, 2018

Please join us for a community-focused discussion on the emerging threat of PFAS to the Huron River. A panel of State, County, City and Huron River Watershed Council staff will present information followed by a time for audience questions and answers.

Presented by the Huron River Watershed Council, the Washtenaw County Health Department, and the City of Ann Arbor.

PFAS are toxic, synthetic chemicals used to manufacture many common household products. PFAS is an acronym that represents a family of more than 3000 similar contaminants. PFAS have been found throughout Michigan and in the Huron River watershed. PFAS are associated with a number of health risks when they accumulate in the human body over time and when they are highly concentrated in food and water.
