The Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (EGLE) today announced that the state's Environmental Rules Review Committee (ERRC) approved draft rules limiting PFAS contamination in drinking water, moving them forward in the state rule-making process.
Eight ERRC members voted in favor of the rules with two members abstaining from the vote.
"Governor Whitmer has made clean drinking water for all Michiganders a top priority in this administration and EGLE would like to thank the members of the ERRC for moving these important drinking water standards forward," EGLE Director Liesl Clark said. "The ERRC represents both environmental and business stakeholders and today s vote shows there is broad support for rules that protect Michiganders from contaminants in their drinking water."
The draft rules and supporting documents will be forwarded to the Michigan Office of Administrative Hearings and Rules (MOAHR), and then on to the Joint Committee on Administrative Rules (JCAR). A final rule could be adopted in April 2020.
