The City of Flint Department of Public Works has published its Quarterly Water Quality Report for October, 2015. The Quarterly Water Quality Report provides important information about Flint’s drinking water, including information about the water source, current drinking water issues, lead information, water filters, testing, 3rd quarter news, and temporary expectations when changing water sources. The report is being mailed to all City of Flint water customers and contains the following highlighted events by month:
The report is the last to be issued showing the Flint River as a primary drinking water source and contains information on what temporary issues residents can expect during the change in water source, including hydrant flushing and possible discoloration as the water goes through the system. The report also references the submittal of a plan to the MDEQ for the addition of corrosion control agents to treated water delivered from Detroit.
Recent issues with lead leaching into drinking water as the reason for the switch in water source are mentioned in the report along with information regarding lead safety, free in-home water testing and free filters available to residents. A table containing all of the third quarter “Regulated Detected Contaminants”, a feature of every water quality report, appears at the end of the publication.
