City of Flint’s Water System Now Meeting Federal Lead and Copper Rule, Action Levels Comparable to Cities With Similar Size and Age of Infrastructure in Michigan and Across The U.S.

State remains committed to continuing work in Flint as city and residents recover

FLINT, MICH. The City of Flint’s water system is now testing below action levels of the federal Lead and Copper Rule and at levels comparable to cities with similar size and age of infrastructure in Michigan and across the nation. The notification of this finding, based on results from the most recent 6-month monitoring period, was provided this morning by the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality to the Mayor of Flint.

“This is good news and the result of many partners on the local, county, state and federal levels working together to restore the water quality in the City of Flint,” said MDEQ Director Heidi Grether. “The Flint water system is one of the most monitored systems in the country for lead and copper, and we remain committed to continuing work in Flint as the city recovers.”More
