PARCHMENT, MI , Nov. 14, 2018 (Mlive.com) -An investigation into the origin and extent of PFAS contamination in the north part of Kalamazoo County started Monday.

In July, the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality found high levels of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) polluting the city of Parchment's municipal and residential wells.

High PFAS levels found on a landfill once used by paper mills indicate a likely source, but a study of groundwater in the city of Parchment, Cooper Township and Kalamazoo Township should definitively determine where contaminants came from and where they spread.
