PFAS found at Grand Haven's Robinson Elementary

ROBINSON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — State officials are investigating elevated levels of PFAS in the water at Grand Haven Area Public Schools' Robinson Elementary.

Tests at the school on 120th Avenue north of Lake Michigan Drive in Robinson Township found the chemical at 144 parts per trillion, according to the Ottawa County Department of Public Health. That's about double what's considered safe for consumption.

The district says it was notified of the test results by the Michigan Department of Quality on Monday, at which point it turned off drinking fountains and switched students and staff to bottled water. A letter was sent to parents explaining the situation.
