Town Hall: Is our drinking water safe?

September 11, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

People all over Michigan are wondering: Is my water safe to drink? Whom can I trust for honest answers about my tap water? Why do my water bills keep going up?

Michigan Environmental Council is building a Drinking Water Toolkit to help residents find answers to questions like these.

MEC want to make sure our Toolkit delivers the info people want and need in a format that works. So, they’re holding a series of FREE town halls around Michigan to share what they’ve learned about drinking water safety and affordability and to gather ideas and hear your feedback.

Learn about and discuss:

* The basics about drinking water systems in Michigan.

* Questions you should ask about safety and affordability in your home & hometown.

* Steps you can take to protect your community from a devastating crisis like Flint has faced.

* Ideas for making water bills affordable for all Michiganders.

* Ways we can improve our state drinking water laws, including increasing infrastructure investments and replacing our state’s main source of environmental clean-up money which expires this year.

This Plainfield Township event is co-hosted by MEC and West Michigan Environmental Action Council with special guest Dr. Richard Rediske from the Annis Water Resources Institute at Grand Valley State University. We hope you can join us!
