PFAS Town Hall To Be Held At Eastern Michigan University

Aug 20, 2019

A town hall meeting will be held Tuesday evening August 20th at Eastern Michigan University to address concerns over the man-made chemicals known as PFAS.  U.S. Congresswoman Debbie Dingell from the 12th District is co-hosting the event with other local elected officials.  Dingell says that, while PFAS has been detected in the Huron River, the river is not the only concern.

"But we're also having to address issues, is there PFAS in styrofoam containers that you take home carryout food in or have a drink in?" said Congresswoman Dingell. 

The town hall starts at 7PM at the Student Center auditorium.
