In a statement released on Facebook Sunday evening, the Great Lakes Water Authority continued to back the quality of the water that is being supplied to the Downriver area, saying that it’s safe to use. Below is the exact statement released last night:
The Great Lakes Water Authority (GLWA) recognizes downriver residents’ concerns regarding water taste and odor issues. The Authority wants to assure our customer communities that it is committed to providing water of unquestionable quality. The GLWA continuously tests the water it produces to ensure that it meets regulatory standards. When taste and odor issues were raised in a number of downriver communities, GLWA expanded its testing, increasing the number of samples being taken at the Southwest Water Treatment Facility, which serves these communities. Results of this scaled up testing reinforce that regulatory water standards are being achieved, and that the water is safe.” Cheryl Porter, COO, GLWA
