Can people bathe and swim in water containing PFAS?
The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services MDHHS has issued a “Do Not Eat Fish” advisory for the Huron River and advises people and their pets to avoid foam on the Huron River. Foam can have much higher amounts of PFAS than the water, and swallowing foam with PFAS could be a health risk. Swimming or bathing in water containing PFAS is not a health concern because the amount of PFAS is typically low compared to the foam. Although swallowing PFAS is the main way to get it in your body, an accidental swallow of river or lake water is not a health concern. Although, current science indicates PFAS does not move easily through the skin, it’s best to rinse off foam, including family pets, after contact and bathe or shower after the day’s outdoor activities. None of this information changes recommendations for people’s water used at home. The City of Ann Arbor is exploring the installation of hand-rinsing stations in close proximity to the city’s canoe liveries this summer. These will be in addition to hand-washing facilities available in public restrooms at the liveries. Visit the PFAS webpage for additional information
