The Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (EGLE) today announced that its Office of the Clean Water Public Advocate has launched its Drinking Water Concern System to track and respond to public concerns about drinking water quality. The EGLE call center is also available to receive water quality concerns at 800-662-9278.
The web-based platform, Michigan.gov/DrinkingWaterConcerns, is available in English, Spanish and Arabic and can be accessed from computers, mobile phones and tablets. The system also allows users to post images that illustrate their drinking water concerns. Michigan residents with concerns about their community water supplier or their own private wells may utilize the online system to raise concerns. As residents complete the online form, they are provided with helpful tips and resources to address common drinking water questions based on the concern category selected. Later this year, a public facing dashboard will be available to display water quality concerns received by EGLE based on location.
