Frequently Asked Questions
PFAS in Landfills
The Kent County Department of Public Works is committed to monitoring our facilities and addressing PFAS contamination at its source. We are actively seeking solutions to treat leachate that may contain PFAS now, or in the future, in a way that meets or exceeds standards. We will do everything we can to be part of the solution to address PFAS contamination and protect the environment and human health.
We are working closely with state and federal regulators and our contracted partners to establish treatment plans for leachate coming from landfills that Kent County oversees. Updates will be posted here as they are available. If you have questions about PFAS at Kent County DPW sites, please contact us.
Additional facility-specific environmental monitoring information is listed in the ‘news’ section at http://www.reimaginetrash.org/facilities/kentwood-sparta-landfill/, if it is available.
