In West Michigan, sticker shock over toxic water costs
from M Live
Plainfield township, Michigan, is feeling sticker shock over the cost to bring safe water to areas contaminated by Wolverine World Wide. The township estimates it could cost up to $62 million to extend municipal water mains to every street in the 25 square-mile contaminated zone of Kent County, Michigan, where Wolverine’s tannery waste dumping polluted groundwater with toxic “forever chemicals.” In Michigan thus far, that’s easily the largest single expense a local government is faced with related to contamination from toxic fluorochemicals called PFAS.
