SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE AND RECOMMENDATIONS FOR MANAGING PFAS CONTAMINATION IN MICHIGAN
Michigan PFAS Science Advisory Panel, 90 pp, 2018

In November 2017, after finding per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) in several locations in Michigan, the Michigan PFAS Action Response Team (MPART) was established by Executive Directive. The purpose of MPART is to ensure a comprehensive, cohesive, and timely response to the continued mitigation of PFASs across Michigan. Since its inception, MPART has worked to address 34 sites of PFAS groundwater and surface water contamination across the state. This report provides a general understanding of human health risks associated with PFASs in the environment and evidence-based recommendations to Michigan. While this document discusses environmental pathways for PFAS contamination, its scope is directed toward human health as a first priority. https://www.michigan.gov/documents/pfasresponse/Science_Advisory_Board_Report_641294_7.pdf
