In a bill passed today, beginning on August 3, 2020, Michigan will have one of the strictest PFAS drinking water standards in the country. The rule also goes beyond the traditional PFOA and PFOS limits set by several other states, and sets limits for a total of seven PFAS compounds:
- PFNA (6-parts per trillion)
- PFOA (8-parts per trillion)
- PFOS (16-parts per trillion)
- PFHxS (51-parts per trillion)
- GenX (370-parts per trillion)
- PFBS (420-parts per trillion)
- PFHxA (400,000-parts per trillion)
The new standards will also result in 42 new sites being added into Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes and Energy (EGLE) list of PFAS contamination investigations.
