GLWA Statement: No Impact to Quality of GLWA Drinking Water from Toxic Material Site in Madison Heights
January 3, 2020
There is no impact to the drinking water provided by the Great Lakes Water Authority (GLWA) to its member communities related to the environmental clean-up currently underway at Electro-Plating Services site in Madison Heights.
The source of the water treated by the Great Lakes Water Authority (GLWA) is from Lake Huron and the Detroit River (as opposed to groundwater wells). Additionally, GLWA’s three intakes, one in Lake Huron and two in the Detroit River are very long distances from the Electro-Plating Services site in Madison Heights.
