OSCODA, Mich. (AP) - The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services plans to host an open house and public meeting where it will provide updates on drinking water contamination at and near the former Wurtsmith Air Force Base.

The U.S. Air Force and the Department of Health and Human Services in December discovered perfluorinated compounds in drinking water wells near the former base in Oscoda.

The agencies will discuss water sampling, actions taken to provide an alternate source of water and the status of the investigation. They also will provide answers to questions received at a meeting in March.

The open house will be held Tuesday from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and the community meeting will be held at 6 p.m. at Oscoda Methodist Church.
