Drinking water quality is important to our community and the region. The Detroit Water and Sewerage Department (DWSD) and the Great Lakes Water Authority (GLWA) are committed to meeting state and federal water quality standards including the Lead and Copper Rule. The 2017 Water Quality Report highlights the performance of GLWA and DWSD water professionals in delivering some of the nation’s best drinking water. Together, we are committed to protecting public health and maintaining open communication with the community about our drinking water.
