As part of ongoing monitoring of substances commonly known as PFAS, the city of Sturgis, in coordination with Michigan Department of Environmental Quality, conducted tests on groundwater at the landfill on Big Hill Road.
Results showed quality standards for surface-water discharge are being met.
Testing took place within the past several months after the city in October sampled water from the Big Hill landfill groundwater treatment system.
PFAS are industrial chemicals that have been used worldwide in common consumer products and manufacturing processes. The city will continue to monitor water quality of the municipal drinking water system, officials said, as well as surface water discharges from the treatment plant and Big Hill Landfill treatment system.
