You're invited: Plainfield Township town hall on drinking water

Sep 6, 2017
People across Michigan are wondering: Is my water safe to drink? Whom can I trust for honest answers about my tap water? Why do my water bills keep going up?

On Monday, September 11, the Michigan Environmental Council (MEC) will hold a drinking water town hall in Plainfield Township. The event will provide residents an opportunity to learn about their drinking water, including where it comes from, how it is treated and transported on the way to their taps, and what contaminants are potentially present. Issues related to water affordability will also be discussed.

This town hall event is co-hosted by West Michigan Environmental Action Council with special guest Dr. Richard Rediske from the Annis Water Resources Institute at Grand Valley State University. We hope you can join us!

WHEN: Monday, September 11 from 5:30 – 7:30 pm
WHERE: Kent District Library, 2650 Five Mile Rd NE, Grand Rapids, MI 49525

MEC will share a draft of its new resident drinking water toolkit with attendees and will seek public feedback to ensure the finished version of its toolkit answers the questions on residents' minds in a user-friendly format. Previous water quality town hall events have been held in Bay City, Jackson, and Lathrup Village.

We will announce additional town halls on our Facebook page as locations and times are set: https://www.facebook.com/MichiganEnvironmentalCouncil/
