Michigan

States Leading The Way

With key leadership from the Ecology Center, the Great Lakes PFAS Action Network, and other allies, Michigan has developed a strong reputation for addressing environmental health concerns. For example, Michigan was one of the first states to recognize the threat from PFAS chemicals and has been a leader in identifying contaminated sites. The state has also appropriated millions of dollars to address contamination and established a multi-agency Michigan PFAS Action Response Team (MPART) to coordinate clean-up responses. Additionally, Michigan has created drinking water standards for certain PFAS chemicals and has taken action to address lead poisoning.
