Parchment Water Crisis Getting National Attention
CNN came to West Michigan and spoke to residents affected by the PFAS problem.
We've known about PFAS contamination in Parchment, Cooper Township and Portage water since July 26th. The situation is now getting national attention.

Now, all Cooper could see were toxins all over her house, poisoning her nearly 3-year-old daughter, Jillian, who has lived in Parchment most of her life. "You look around and you have sippy cups around," she said. Every cup of water -- in fact, anything using the water -- became suspect.
Starting Aug. 18, residents will be able to pick up water from 2-7 p.m. on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday at the church. Additional cases of water will be available due to the reduction in pick up dates.
