PARCHMENT, MI, Aug. 1, 2018 (Local News) -The state is focusing on a long-closed paper mill and its neighboring dump site as a possible source for PFAS that has shut down an entire community's water, sources told 24 Hour News 8.

The focus is on the long-shuttered Crown Vantage paper mill on the northern edge of Parchment, and on the dump, just to the north in Cooper Township.

Parchment's wells contaminated by the likely carcinogen are less than a mile downstream from the old mill and dump on the Kalamazoo River.
