Analyze My Water
Understanding your water supply is fundamental to ensure the supply of safe drinking water to your home, school, or work. To engage with and troubleshoot the quality of your drinking water, you should get to know the potential causes of hazardous water, and how to determine if your water may be unsafe to drink.
Your water may be vulnerable to different contaminants depending on your water system. Contaminants like PFAS and lead are a significant concern in Michigan. It is essential to understand your water system and its susceptibility to pollutants.
FOLLOW THESE STEPS TO ENSURE YOUR WATER IS SAFE
One of the most effective ways to determine the quality of your drinking water is to test it for contamination. Since minor traces of some contaminants are not necessarily hazardous, it is important to monitor your water quality regularly to ensure the concentration of these contaminants do not reach hazardous levels.
CHOOSE YOUR WATER SOURCE
HOW DO I KNOW?
If you pay a monthly water bill or are in most urban areas, choose Public Utility.
If you have a pressure tank in your basement, crawl space, or utility closet, or are in most rural areas, choose Private Well.
Hint: Some rural areas are served by Public Utilities, while a few homes in urban areas do use Private Wells.
