So I heard word than many fishermen are still being seen keeping their fish from the Huron River and Kent Lake, just be aware there's still a do not eat advisory for fish within Oakland and Washtenaw counties. It was reported that PFAS levels have even increased in parts of Ann Arbor Michigan where officials are still searching for potential sources of contamination.
PFAS is no common chemical that can be well tolerated like mercury or lead, it's much worse because it stays in the environment for a very long time, and once you eat or drink from a contaminated source, it circulates in your body for also a very long time. This was a great video about PFAS and how it's affected a Belmont resident named Sandy Wynn-Stelt.
Just simply staying informed about where you can safely eat fish could benefit your health greatly. Pretty touching story from Sandy...
The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) issued an expanded ‘Do Not Eat’ fish advisory for all fish in the Huron River in Livingston, Oakland, Washtenaw, Wayne, and Monroe Counties. The original advisory was issued on Saturday, August 4, 2018.
