Fishbeck Teams with School Officials to Remove PFAS from School’s Drinking Water Source

Fishbeck was retained by the Grand Haven Public Schools in early 2019 to determine how to provide reliably clean drinking water to school children after EGLE discovered PFAS in the school’s drinking water supply well. Following an extensive review of available technologies, Fishbeck determined that an ion exchange (IX) system would provide the most reliably clean drinking water supply. After nearly two years of planning, designing, permitting, and a full year of extensive sampling, the local health department approved the IX treated water for consumption starting last week.

The success of this project is a testament to the collaboration of the Grand Haven Area Public Schools administrators, EGLE, Ottawa County Department of Public Health, and Fishbeck, and the effort was reported by MLive in an article published January 21, 2021.

The Fishbeck team that worked on the project include: Steve MacDonald, Fernanda Wilson, Mike Apgar, John Barszewski, Tim Patterson, and Mike Ingersoll. John Willemin and Tim McNamara from Water/Wastewater also contributed to the project.
