PENNFIELD TOWNSHIP, Mich. — Pennfield Charter Township has received test results after a water sample was secured by the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality in mid-June that show PFAS have not been detected in the township's water system.
On June 27, the MDEQ tested three sites within the township's water system for manganese, as well. Two sites did not detect levels, while the third came back reading 0.04 mg/L, which is within the acceptable state levels for manganese testing.
“We are very happy with the results from the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality regarding our water system and the quality of the water which we are providing to the residents of Pennfield Charter Township. We will continue to be proactive in providing the best quality of water to our residents as possible” Dave Morgan, Pennfield Charter Township supervisor, said. “Having a great working relationship with the City of Battle Creek and their willingness to go above and beyond to work together with our water department has been an advantage for both our communities. When communities work together everyone wins and we are a perfect example of that”.
