Perfluorooctanesulfonic acid, also known as PFAS, is a chemical contaminant used in many products and applications including sealants, automotive treatments, and foam fire suppression. PFAS contamination has been discovered in many bodies of water in Michigan including aquifers that contain drinking water. Consumption of PFAS can lead to many health issues including thyroid disease and cancer. PFAS is not only a hazard in the immediate area of release, but it can also spread through air, soil, and any wildlife that drinks from tainted water sources. Because of these risks, PFAS contamination is a growing environmental concern across Michigan and the United States.
While state and federal environmental regulations are still catching up with new findings in the prevalence of PFAS contamination and its negative health effects, some regulations do apply to PFAS contaminated sites already. Our team is dedicated to keeping our clients compliant with all regulations, including those that may be new to contractors and business owners. PFAS remediation must be handled by licensed professionals in order to ensure that the contaminant is stopped from spreading and carefully extracted from polluted waters.
