THE WATERSHED CENTER TO HOST COMMUNITY FORUM ON PFAS
FREE EVENT PLANNED FOR THURSDAY, MAY 9
The Watershed Center Grand Traverse Bay is hosting a free community forum where residents, business owners, and community members can hear from public health experts, environmental specialists, and leaders who are working to protect our drinking water from PFAS, a group of chemicals increasingly being found in water supplies throughout the state. The event will be held on Thursday, May 9 from 6-7:30 p.m. at West Middle School, 3950 W. Silver Lake Road in Traverse City.
The forum will feature Steve Sliver, Executive Director of the Michigan PFAS Action Response Team, and local experts on PFAS in our region.
“PFAS are an emerging threat to drinking water everywhere, including in our watershed,” said Christine Crissman, Executive Director of The Watershed Center. “The more we learn about the topic, the more concerned we are. Michigan has recently completed a testing effort and will soon be setting drinking water standards for the state.”
The forum will include presentations followed by a panel discussion and question and answer session with the audience. Morgan Springer, News Director at Interlochen Public Radio, will moderate the event.
The forum is sponsored in part by Global Remediation Technologies, Inc. and Great Lakes Environmental Center. The community forum is not sponsored by Traverse City Area Public Schools.
