Private citizen group creates PFAS health survey for northern Kent County

PLAINFIELD TOWNSHIP, MICH. – A group of private citizens created a survey for people in northern Kent County who have been exposed to PFAS in their water.
"What we’re finding is completely astonishing," said Cody Angell, co-author of the study.
Angell started the concerned citizen Facebook group called Demand Action From Plainfield Township Regarding Unsafe Drinking Water on Nov. 19 with Travis Brown.
I went on Google and made a couple forms…[and] asked residents to post their information."
"Six of the illnesses associated with PFAS were the highest on the chart," Angel said.
"Now is that a direct correlation?
The survey is meant to reach people on private wells in the Rockford-area of contamination linked to Wolverine Worldwide dumping practices, as well as anyone on Plainfield Township municipal water.
"Hopefully then, by providing them this information, they will reign in and actually continue our efforts and help us," he said.
