We Get our Water from The Ground or Lake Huron. Looking at The Hydrologic Cycle below you can see how all the contaminants in the environment get in the water. Its like a big mixing bowl.

  1. Water Evaporates
  2. water Falls as Rain
  3. Water Picks up pollutants from Air
  4. Water Picks up pollutants from Ground Surface, lakes, ponds, etc.
  5. Water seeps into ground and picks up pollutants from dumping, soil, human and animal waste, septic fields, etc.
  6. Then We pump it out of the ground and Drink it..... Really!

Think before you drink!!!!

 

Thousands , even Just Hundreds of years ago the environment was pristine and clear. The air was clean, there were no dump sites, no acid rain. The picture above shows this.

 Today All that has changed. The Air is polluted, The ground is covered with oil and chemicals. The Ground has been contaminated with chemicals, waste, dumping, fracking, etc.

The picture above shows this.

How is the "water quality" in Michigan?

 Here are some facts about water in Michigan and related web sites.

 

 

in 1974 - Congress passed the Safe Drinking Water Act


The Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) is the main federal law that ensures the quality of Americans' drinking water.Under SDWA, EPA sets standards for drinking water quality and oversees the states, localities, and water suppliers who implement those standards.

SDWA was originally passed by Congress in 1974 to protect public health by regulating the nation's public drinking water supply. The law was amended in 1986 and 1996 and requires many actions to protect drinking water and its sources: rivers, lakes, reservoirs, springs, and ground water wells. (SDWA does not regulate private wells which serve fewer than 25 individuals.) For more information see:       http://water.epa.gov/lawsregs/rulesregs/sdwa/index.cfm

 

 

1976- Michigan Safe Drinking Water Act ACT 399 of 1976

AN ACT to protect the public health; to provide for supervision and control over public water supplies; to prescribe the powers and duties of the department of environmental quality; to provide for the submission of plans and specifications for waterworks systems and the issuance of construction permits therefor; to provide for capacity assessments and source water assessments of public water supplies; to provide for the classification of public water supplies and the examination, certification and regulation of persons operating those systems; to provide for continuous, adequate operation of privately owned, public water supplies; to authorize the promulgation of rules to carry out the intent of the act; to create the water supply fund; to provide for the administration of the water supply fund; and to provide penalties.
