RECENT CITY NEWS
With recent water quality concerns in Flint, it is important for residents to understand the water quality standards in their community. Birmingham publishes an annual report on water quality which shows the sources of water, lists the results of our tests and contains important information about the City’s water and public health. These annual reports continually show Birmingham’s water quality standards surpass the water quality standards mandated by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ). To review City’s annual reports on water quality, you can visit the City’s website (www.bhamgov.org) or click here for the current annual report.
