The Costs of the Forever Chemicals

As residents, researchers and lawmakers learn more about how industrial chemicals are permeating household water supplies, MLive Media Group and Detroit Public Television’s Great Lakes Now initiative collaborated to report stories that will help further public understanding of this latest water crisis. The two entities also produced a half-hour documentary that aired on DPTV and other public broadcasters in the region. While telling the stories of the human costs of PFAS contamination, the MLive reporters and the DPTV crew also showed the expenses and the debate about who pays in municipalities, state-level agencies and the federal government.
