United States Senators Gary Peters and Debbie Stabenow and Representatives Dan Kildee and Elissa Slotkin have urged the U.S. Air Force to take more significant steps to address PFAS contamination around the former Wurtsmith Air Force Base near Oscoda.

In their letter, members expressed their concerns that the Air Force’s proposed remediation plan fails to comprehensively address PFAS contamination plumes spread throughout the area. They additionally called on the Air Force to meet the State of Michigan’s standards for addressing PFAS contamination.

The Air Force recently proposed an Interim Remedial Action to guide cleanup around Oscoda. The plan, however, focuses on one particular contamination area, which fails to reflect the degree of PFAS contamination impacting Oscoda neighborhoods.
