Water returning to house in Belmont PFAS zone


PLAINFIELD TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — A Belmont family who was without water for more than three weeks because they aren't allowed to drill a new well is expected to have running water back in time to host Thanksgiving.

"I'll be able to host Thanksgiving, so I'm cleaning today and getting ready," Terry Hula told 24 Hour News 8 Tuesday. "I could not be more excited."

Hula's property on House Street NE is next to the old Wolverine Worldwide dump that's the source of PFAS contamination in the area. When the well started leaking, she was told she couldn't drill another one because it may affect the contamination area. Her family spent weeks hauling buckets to fill the toilet and boiling camp containers of water for showers and cleaning.
