Michigan is suing 17 companies because of a PFAS contamination.
This state spends $25 million dollars a year on funding to prevent future PFAS contaminations.
This dangerous chemical is hard to clean-up.
PFAS can travel in groundwater, surface water, impacting wildlife and drinking water.
According to state data, 1.9 million Michigan residents are drinking water with some PFAS.
Attorney general Dana Nessel is targeting chemical companies.
She wants to get the funding they can to solve the problem.
