“PFAS and Beyond”

Environmental Educators Rebecca Meuninck, PhD & Gillian Zaharias, PhD, work at the Ecology Center of Ann Arbor and will speak on environmental issues of local concern such as PFAS.

PFAS is an acronym for perfluoroalkyls, which are a group of man-made chemicals that are used globally during the past century They have been found in the Huron River, Ann Arbor’s drinking water, and the area’s well water.  Contamination in an Oakland County creek that feeds into the Huron River and its chain of lakes is setting a new state record for PFAS present today in Michigan surface water.
