Attend the MDEQ Lead & Copper Public Hearing

Thu, Mar 1, 2018 - 5:00pm to 8:00pm


As part of a larger statewide effort to reduce lead exposure, the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) is drafting proposed changes to the Lead and Copper Provisions of the Michigan Safe Drinking Water Act. The DEQ and Drinking Water and Municipal Assistance Division (DWMAD) will hold a public hearing to receive public comments on these proposed changes.

We need to speak up loud and clear and tell our state leaders that they should be focused on replacing lead service lines the right way to keep lead out of our drinking water, figuring out where all the lead service lines are and where action is most urgently needed, moving as quickly as possible and be certain to keep families safe during the replacement period, and ensuring the solution is affordable.

Flint made headlines in 2014 and our state leaders have done virtually nothing to prevent this from happening again. These recommendations are a first step and crucial step forward.

**Join us in Lansing to speak up and demand that Michigan leaders protect our drinking water and protect our families.

Regional Coordinators are happy to help draft public comments and will organize transportation for those who need assistance getting to Lansing.
