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.
