Flint Michigan Water Quality Issues

There’s been a lot of discussion about lead in tap water following the events in Flint, Michigan.   As we learn more about what happened in Flint many people have asked “Could this happen here?”.  Flint’s issues and circumstances are very different from what we see in CRW’s service area.

In Flint, corrosive water combined with old lead service lines caused the contamination of tap water.  There are no known lead PUBLIC service lines in either of CRW’s service areas.  While the likelihood is very low, we must also verify that there are no lead PRIVATE service lines in our district.
