Campus Drinking Water Quality Initiative

UM-Dearborn Facilities Operations/Environmental Health and Safety collected drinking water samples from all university buildings (except the ROC and Pony Barn) to assess lead levels. Lead levels in all drinking water samples were below the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ) concentrations.

Campus Drinking Water Quality

Campus-Wide Water Sampling Program

The University of Michigan–Dearborn Facilities Operations Environmental Health and Safety team collected drinking water samples from all occupied university buildings that supply drinking water to assess lead levels and other representative water quality parameters. Lead levels in all drinking water samples were below the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ) action level of 15 parts per billion (ppb).  EHS has drafted a water sampling summary that provides an overview of the collection, analytical and management plan for assuring our water is safe for consumption.
