Faucet

LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) – In the wake of Flint’s water crisis, the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality is asking Michigan residents where else to look for possible problems with water quality.

The Department is putting together a strategy for monitoring water quality and public suggestions are being accepted through the end of November.

Officials want to know what bodies of water, drinking water sources, or areas of the Great Lakes residents think should be under a close watch.

Areas of concern include chemistry, fish contamination, nuisance plants and algae, as well as the bacteria e-coli.

Monitoring request forms can be found
