Nov. 14 – Learn About Lead and Copper Rules at Huntington Woods Open House

Huntington Woods, MI -Want to learn more about the new Lead and Copper rules and the City’s recent test results? Because the City Commission takes the issue of water quality very seriously, an open house has been arranged to provide information and answer questions.

While there is no lead or copper in the City’s water supply, lead can be present in the water service line that brings water into a home.  Water service lines can be made of lead, galvanized metal, copper or plastic.  Lead can also be present inside the home in fixtures, faucets and solder.  The City is hosting an open house on Thursday, November 14th from 6 – 8 p.m. at City Hall to provide residents with information on the following topics:

Presentation on the lead and copper rules at 7 p.m.

Where lead might be in your home

Learn methods to mitigate lead exposure

Make an appointment to have your water service line checked

Arrange to have your water tested for lead ($23 fee)

City staff from the Department of Public Works will be at the meeting to answer questions and address any concerns. Representatives from the Oakland County Health Department and the offices of Representative Wittenberg and Senator Jeremy Moss will be present to provide additional resources.
