Wolverine Worldwide announced it will provide water filtration systems for 338 homes in Plainfield Township whose wells are being tested for the presence of man-made chemicals contained in 3M's Scotchgard product.

The company said it will arrange and pay for the costs of filter equipment and customized installation. All homes currently part of the study area established by the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality, as well as homes in the expanded buffer zone are eligible to receive whole house water filtration systems.

For the last several months, Wolverine has been working with the MDEQ and the Kent County Health Department to develop and implement a water-testing program to understand the extent of PFAS, the chemical that is contaminating wells in the area.

“People are concerned about their water – we share in that concern and we felt this was the right thing to do, right now. While we can’t speed up the testing process, we can give people confidence in their water by providing this longer-term solution,” said Chris Hufnagel, the Company’s senior vice president of strategy. “Wolverine Worldwide is committed to working with the MDEQ, Kent County Health Department, and Plainfield Township to get all the answers. We live and work here and we will see this through to the end.”

Homeowners are being contacted to arrange for the installation of whole house filter systems. For more information on the whole house filtration program, contact Wolverine Worldwide at (616) 866-5627 or at HouseStreet@wwwinc.com.
