Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS)

The Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ) has begun a statewide initiative to test drinking water from all schools that use well water and community water supplies. The test is looking for a group of manmade chemicals called per-and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS). MDEQ is taking this precautionary step of testing these drinking water sources to determine if public health actions are needed.

It is not uncommon to find low levels of PFAS in drinking water supplies, as PFAS can be found in fire-fighting foams, stain repellants, nonstick cookware, waterproof clothing, food wrappers, and many other household products. They do not break down in the environment and move easily into water.

The EPA set a LHA level for two PFAS in drinking water, perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS). The LHA level is 70 parts per trillion (ppt, equal to 70 ng/L) for PFOA and PFOS combined, or individually if only one is present. The EPA has not set health advisory levels for other PFAS compounds. The State of Michigan is using 70 ppt for decision making purposes.

The City of Wyoming was tested by AECOM, MDEQ’s contractor. The test results can be found on the Michigan PFAS Action Response Team website, The results show that of the PFOA and PFOS tested, less than 5 ppt were found in the water. The level is below the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) lifetime health advisory (LHA).

Water System

The City of Wyoming is responsible for repairing and maintaining the following water system related items within the City.

Cross Connection Control Program

The City of Wyoming is committed to protecting our drinking water and requires periodic testing of all backflow devices. Visit our Cross Connection Control page to see more information.

Flushing Program / Hydrants

The City of Wyoming cleans all of the public water mains each year. This is accomplished by operating all of the fire hydrants, which flushes out the abutting water main.

Occasionally residents will experience (1) tap water discoloration, which can be resolved by letting the water run for a few minutes until clear and/or (2) lawn damage due to running water, which will be repaired with topsoil and hydro mulch. Additional information is available by contacting the Public Works department at (616) 530-7260.
