Washtenaw County, Michigan
There is an area in Washtenaw County where the chemical 1,4-dioxane is underground. The area includes parts of Scio Township and western Ann Arbor. This contamination is a concern because wells near the area draw groundwater for use in homes and businesses. Washtenaw County Public Health is providing information to help residents understand the current situation and potential health impacts.
On March 29, 2016, at around 7:00 p.m., Deputy Urban and K9 Fred responded to a larceny from vehicle complaint in the Cavanaugh Lake area of Washtenaw County.
Beginning this spring and continuing through the fall of 2017, the Water Resources Office will be conducting assessments of county drains and stormwater basins throughout Washtenaw County. During this time, we may be more visible to residents or be noticed at locations that typically don’t see much activity. So in the coming months you may receive inquiries about our activity.
Washtenaw County Public Health provides free hearing and vision screenings. Screenings are required for all children entering preschool and kindergarten this coming fall.
The presentation from the March 22 meeting are now available.
2015 results show the program continues to help participants eat more fruits and vegetables. Washtenaw County Public Health and Saint Joseph Mercy Health System (SJMHS) are pleased to announce they are continuing to work together, and SJMHS will fund Prescription for Health in 2016.
