CITY RESPONDS TO LEAD TESTING RESULTS

CITY RESPONDS TO LEAD TESTING RESULTS

The City of St. Clair Shores released a public advisory today for its 25,303 water customers after testing water samples from known locations with lead service lines. Results showed that four (4) of the 32 targeted sites tested exceeded the Action Level based on the 15 ppb (parts per billion). The Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes and Energy or EGLE (formally the MDEQ) evaluates compliance with the Action Level based on the 90th percentile of all lead and copper results collected in each round of sampling. As a result of testing under a new method, the lead 90th percentile for the City of St. Clair Shores water supply is ­­21 ppb, which exceeds the Action Level of 15 ppb.
