Update on Great Lakes Water Authority - Downriver Communities
January 16, 2017
"Taste and odor are associated with a spike in turbidity in the source water. When taste and odor issues were raised in a number of downriver communities, the Great Lakes Water Authority (GLWA) expanded its testing, increasing the number of samples being taken at the Southwest Water Treatment Facility (which serves the communities affected) and within the distribution system. Results of this increased testing have all shown that the water meets the EPA's Safe Drinking Water Act regulatory standards and is safe.
