Crews testing wells and Kalamazoo River as water stations built for Parchment
PARCHMENT, Mich. —
The first of three water stations were installed to provide safe water to Parchment and will be turned on Monday.
Crews are already working on the two other permanent connections to the Kalamazoo water supply.
The DEQ has been busy testing public wells, private wells and the Kalamazoo River for the presence of PFAS after a state of emergency was declared in Parchment in July when toxic levels of cancer-causing chemicals were found in the water supply.
Results for the Kalamazoo River testing are expected back next week.
Everyone on Parchment city water has been relying on bottled water to drink and cook with.
The Kalamazoo Growlers helped hand out cases to folks in need.
