Lead and Copper  (more information at www.WashingtonTownship.org/LeadAndCopper)

The water that GLWA delivers to our community does not contain lead.

Washington Township's annual Drinking Water Lead and Copper testing results are included in the annual Water Quality Report / CCR.

There are no Lead Service Lines (LSLs), no Galvanized Requiring Replacement (GRRs), and no lead status Unknown service lines in Washington Township's public water distribution system. Washington Township had an ordinance in place since 1975 which specified materials used in service line construction and no deviations from our ordinance have been observed. The Department of Public Works (DPW) continually inspects and records the material composition of public water service connections. If you have questions about your public water service line, contact Department of Public Works (DPW) (586) 786-0010 ext 2002 or DPW@WashingtonTwpMI.org

Information on how to reduce your exposure to lead can be found online at www.Michigan.gov/MiLeadSafe

Unregulated Contaminant Monitoring Rule (UCMR)

Unregulated contaminants are those for which EPA has not established drinking water standards. Monitoring helps EPA to determine where these contaminants occur and whether it needs to regulate those contaminants.

PFAS Testing for Drinking Water System (2021 Results)

"The Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes and Energy’s (EGLE) Per and Polyfluoroalkyl compounds (PFAS) drinking water rule requires testing for seven PFAS compounds and established maximum contaminant levels (MCLs). PFAS are man-made compounds used in the manufacturing of carpets, clothing, fabrics for furniture, paper packages for food and other materials that are resistant to water, grease or stains. They are also found in products such as firefighting foams, cleaners, cosmetics, paints, adhesives and insecticides.

The Great Lakes Water Authority (GLWA) has been monitoring PFAS in since 2009. In our latest round of drinking water system testing required under the rule, GLWA is pleased to assure the public that these chemicals were not detected. This means that PFAS levels were below that which is measurable under the EPA’s standard analytical methodology for the detection of the compounds. 

The water that GLWA distributes to its member partner communities remains water of unquestionable quality."
