Understanding my laboratory results

Be Well Informed (BWI) is an online tool hosted by United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) that allows you to enter your water quality lab results and obtain information regarding any contaminant concentrations that exceed Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (EGLE) or federal standards or guidelines that exist for public drinking water. The tool also provides information about any potential health risks and recommended water treatment options.
