Welcome

Nestled in southwest Wayne County along the banks of the scenic Huron River lays the beautiful Township of Huron. With 3 distinct villages of New Boston, Waltz and Willow, Huron Township offers a tranquil safe environment to raise a family or locate a business.

Home to Lower Huron, Willow and Oakwoods Metroparks, Huron Township boasts numerous miles of linked bike paths and kayaking courses as well as a multitude of other recreational opportunities including fishing, golf, and a family aquatic center.

The October Applefest featuring locally grown produce is just one of the many community events that brings families together during the year.

Conveniently located just minutes from Detroit Metro International Airport with major freeways and rail ways, Huron Township is a prime business development venue and is home to such leading automotive suppliers as Inergy and Brose.

We encourage our residents and visitors to experience our unique quality of life.

Sincerely,

David A. Glaab

Huron Township Supervisor

GLWA PFAS TESTING FOR DRINKING WATER SYSTEM

August 1, 2018

The Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ) is currently conducting statewide testing for Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS). These are man-made compounds used in the manufacturing of carpets, clothing, fabrics for furniture, paper packages for food and other materials that are resistant to water, grease or stains. They are also found in products such as firefighting foams, cleaners, cosmetics, paints, adhesives and insecticides.

The Great Lakes Water Authority (GLWA) has been monitoring PFAS since 2009. In our 2017-2018 round of drinking water system screenings, GLWA is pleased to assure the public that these chemicals were not detected. This means that PFAS levels were below that which is measurable under the EPA’s standard analytical methodology for the detection of the compounds. Test results from all five of GLWA’s water treatment plants can be found by clicking here.

PFAS are unregulated contaminants. Unregulated contaminants require that GLWA collect data and report that data to the MDEQ and EPA. They then combine that data with other research to make a determination about potential future drinking water regulations regarding the contaminants.

We take our responsibility to public health and safety seriously, and are in full support of MDEQ’s statewide PFAS sampling effort. Additionally, GLWA can confirm that its water remains of unquestionable quality.

-- Cheryl Porter, Chief Operating Officer, Water and Field Services, GLWA
