DETROIT, Oct. 2, 2018 (Local News) -Months after contaminants were found in its water supply, Georgia-Pacific is helping the state officials to help identify the sources of the leaching chemicals in Parchment, state officials said Monday.

State officials said they are "working closely" with railroad officials to find the source of perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances, known as PFAS, that leeched into Parchment's water supply and private drinking wells in Cooper Township, both outside of Kalamazoo, in July.

Residents were ordered to stop drinking the city water, and bottled water supplies were provided.
