  • Will filters and water test kits continue to be available?
    Yes. The state will continue to provide free water filters, replacement cartridges, and water testing kits until service line replacement is completed. Filters will continue to be available for residents who feel more comfortable using a filter until their confidence in the water quality can be re-established. Filters and residential sampling kits are available at City Hall.

    How do I know filters work?

    Water filters are effective at removing lead and other contaminants by 99.9 percent when properly installed and adequately maintained. The U.S. EPA and CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) tested water filters in Flint and found that NSF-certified filters distributed by the state make water safe from lead for everyone. Samples were collected at high-risk locations at homes with full-lead service lines, galvanized plumbing and where the most vulnerable populations live, including pregnant mothers and children.
