This annual report contains important information about the source and quality of our drinking water. The document explains where the Battle Creek area’s water comes from, gives information related to various water issues, including lead in home plumbing, and additional monitoring, and outlines and explains the water sampling results from last year.
Also part of the 2019 report is a monitoring and reporting violation. This is discussed in the report, and the related public notice is attached to the report, and separate on the city’s Annual Water Quality Reports web page. Emmett Township received the state violation for failing to test and report lead levels to city water customers living in Emmett. They followed up to test and report, as required.
The Environmental Protection Agency requires the annual water quality report, also known as a consumer confidence report, for public water suppliers that serve the same people year round.
