As a part of a state-wide initiative, the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ) will be sampling the City of Saline’s drinking water supply this Thursday to evaluate for the presence of Perfluoroalkyl and Polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) in the Saline drinking water system. All Community Water Supplies (CWS) with their own source of water will be sampled as part of this MDEQ effort. Additionally, 461 schools in Michigan that use their own wells will be sampled. The MDEQ contractor, AECOM, will be on site Thursday morning to conduct the sampling event. AECOM’s sampling team is experienced in PFAS sampling and ensuring proper sampling technique and consistent methodology are used. The results should be made available four to six weeks after the sampling event. The City of Saline will inform the public about the results when they are received.
