Officials with the Branch-Hillsdale-St. Joseph Health Department said work is progressing in Mendon to contact and test the water of a dozen homeowners who have wells with possible PFAs at dangerous levels.
Paul Andriacchi, director of environmental health, said when a contamination site was first discovered a number of years ago, the village constructed a municipal water system. About a dozen homeowners, however, opted to keep their private wells.
Several have refused to have their water sampled and if other water tests show unacceptable PFA levels, bottled water and water filters will be an option for those holdouts until an acceptable water source is obtained.
Typically it takes three to four weeks to get test results.
