The Michigan Safe Drinking Water Act has changed to better protect your health. New water sampling rules have been added to better detect possible lead in your drinking water. These changes require communities, including Leslie, with lead service lines and older housing stock, to do more sampling. This new sampling method is expected to result in higher lead results, not because the water source or quality for residents has changed, rather, because the Act has more stringent sampling procedures and analysis.

Since 1992 and in accordance with the Act, the City has been conducting testing for lead and copper at sampling locations throughout the City. On this webpage, you will find an important Public Advisory concerning recent testing results of tap water in 10 of the estimated 120 homes with lead service lines here in the City.

Please take time to read this Public Advisory carefully. It will provide you context and understanding concerning two of the test results as it relates to lead levels in the water. It will also outline actions that you can take as well as steps the City will be taking. You will also find links to a number of resources from the State of Michigan, Ingham County and other sources.
