Beecher Metropolitan District
an Equal Opportunity Organization

In cooperation with the Michigan PFAS Action Response Team (MPART) Beecher Metropolitan District is pleased to announce that samples collected at the District’s three water treatment plants found that Per- and Polyflouroalkyl Substances (PFAS) were not detected in our water supply (see table below). Beecher Metropolitan District is committed to providing safe and reliable drinking water to our customers and we will continue to monitor this emerging contaminant on an annual basis. If you have any questions regarding this matter please call Administrative Superintendent Kevin Forbes at (810) 787-6526 extension 102.

ND – The parameter was not detected based on the laboratory’s analytical report.

Currently, there is no regulatory drinking water standard for any of the PFAS chemicals. However, in May 2016 the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) established a non-regulatory Lifetime Health Advisory (LHA) for two of these chemicals, PFOS and PFOA. The LHA for PFOS and PFOA is 70 ppt combined, or individually if only one of them is present. The USEPA recommends that this LHA applies to both short-term (i.e., weeks to months) scenarios during pregnancy and lactation, as well as to lifetime-exposure scenarios. The LHA is the level, or amount, below which no harm is expected from these chemicals. The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS), as well as the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ), have used this LHA of 70 ppt to inform decisions on actions that should be taken or are recommended to reduce exposure and prevent increased risk to public health from these PFAS contaminants. The USEPA has not set health advisory levels for the other PFAS compounds because not enough is known about them.

2018 ANNUAL AFFIDAVIT FEE

The annual affidavit filing fee is $36.00 for each property address.  This fee covers a one year period beginning January 1, 2018 through December 31, 2018.  You are still required to provide Beecher at least 20 days notification of any cancellation, change in, or termination of lease.   Each time there is a change in a tenant in your property a new Affidavit of Non-Responsibility must be filed with the District.  There is no additional fee at that time.

The filing fee for 2018 is due by January 31st for the 2018 calendar year.  If payment is not received by January 31st, 2018 your property will not be covered by Affidavit on Non-Responsibility.  This will allow a lien to be placed on your property for any unpaid water/sewer bills.
