Richland Township Weekly Water Quality Update

Water Quality Update January 10, 2019

Weekly Water Quality Update


The Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ) resumed field work for the Remedial Investigation in Richland on January 7. MDEQ has expanded the residential water well program area to include DE Ave starting a 35th St and expanding a mile east. To date 18 of the residential wells along DE Ave have been sampled and are results are expected back in mid- or end-January. Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) and Kalamazoo County Health & Community Services will be going one-on-one with those residents to explain the results. Out of an abundance of caution all residents in the expanded residential water well program area have been offered PFAS filters. To date 18 such filters have been distributed.

On Monday, January 7, Kalamazoo County Health & Community Services Environmental Health Unit sent a letter to all residents who have received a PFAS filter to date. The letter states that free replacement filter cartridges can be obtained at the Environmental Health office located at 311 East Alcott Street, 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday. The filter replacement cartridges are designed to be simply and easily replaced, without the need of a plumber. For the convenience of the residents there are instructions attached with the letter and this press release that detail and depict how to replace the cartridge. If any questions arise in this process, please contact the Environmental Health Office at 269-373-5210.
