Per-and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances(PFAS)
The Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ) has begun a statewide initiative to test drinking water from all schools that use well water and community water supplies. The test is looking for a group of man made chemicals called per-and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS). MDEQ is taking this precautionary step of testing these drinking water sources to determine if public health actions are needed. Please click the link below for more information and test results.

Help Your Community and the Environment
The City of Newaygo will be making needed repairs to the sewer plant in the coming months and throughout 2017. Help us prepare now by reducing the amount of water that goes down the drain. This will reduce the amount of waste water that arrives at the sewer plant thereby simplifying the repair process. We also ask for your help in reducing the amount of phosphorus that makes it into the environment. Please reduce or eliminate use of household products that contain phosphorus (i.e. soap, automatic dishwasher products, laundry detergents, etc). Small changes by many people will make a big difference. Thank you for your help.
The City of Newaygo will be taking applications for Substitute School Crossing Guards. Applications and Resumes will be received until the positions are filled.
Please submit Applications/Resumes to:
Newaygo Police Department, 28 State Road, P.O. Box 308, Newaygo, MI 49337.
