In 2018, under the direction of the State of Michigan, community public water supplies were sampled for Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl substances commonly referred to by their plural acronym "PFAS." The Great Lakes Water Authority also completed PFAS sampling of its supplied water in 2018. No PFAS were detected in the sampling results for all water systems operated and maintained by the Oakland County Water Resources Commissioner's office. The sampled water systems are included in the communities of Bingham Farms, Bloomfield Hills, Commerce Township, Farmington Hills, Keego Harbor, Orchard Lake Village, Pontiac, Royal Oak Township, Walled Lake, Oxford Township, and Highland Township. Also sampled and showing no detected PFAS were White Eagle, Knorrwood Knolls, Oakland Hunt, Plum Creek, Southeast Oakland Township, Southwest Oakland Township, Twin Lakes, Wynstone, and Bavarian Softwater water systems.
Customers should contact their water provider for questions about their water supply. The State of Michigan has additional information about PFAS at https://www.michigan.gov/pfasresponse/ .
