RECOMMENDATIONS

Before the property is developed for residential use, reevaluate the surface soil for the appropriate response to minimize the health hazard.

Do not use the shallow groundwater at the property for a household water supply.

Avoid and prevent any contact with the contaminated groundwater at the property.

New environmental data or information concerning the future use of this property may require future health consultations.

If any citizen has additional information or health concerns regarding the J.A.C.O. Plating property, please contact the Michigan Department of Community Health, Environmental Epidemiology Division, at 1-800-648-6942.
