Madison Heights, MI – Turning on the faucet and having clean water come out is something easily taken for granted. They wash their hands, take a shower, brush their teeth, cook, clean, and drink without stopping to think about the system that brings that water to their faucet. At least not until something happens, like the water crisis in Flint.

AsPOWELLad_01 people in Flint access the damage caused by switching to improperly treated water from the Flint River, people in other communities wonder: could this happen where I live?

Jim Nash, the Water Resources Commissioner for Oakland County is confident that the work of his department will keep that from happening. Nash spoke to the oc115 recently at the George W. Kuhn Drain site in Madison Heights about the role of the WRC and the newly formed Great Lakes Water Authority in keeping water safe.

Check out the video interview below to hear Nash’s explanation of the problems in Flint, and what Oakland County does to protect residents from similar catastrophes.

The Oakland County Water Resources Commission website has an abundance of information about water quality and other water and draining related issues. Check it out at https://www.oakgov.com/water.
