Public meeting on Kent Co. PFAS study Tuesday

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — State and local health officials are holding a community meeting to answer questions about a study of people impacted by the likely carcinogen PFAS in northern Kent County’s groundwater.

The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services and Kent County Health Department is inviting residents to attend a community meeting to learn more about the North Kent County PFAS Exposure Assessment. It will be held at 6 p.m. Tuesday at Northview High School, located at 4451 Hunsberger Avenue NE in Plainfield Township.

The study will gather information from people impacted by Wolverine Worldwide’s dumping of Scotchgard-tainted sludge that led to PFAS in northern Kent County’s groundwater. It will evaluate the relationship between drinking water with PFAS and the amount in the body.
