In the case of Private Well Drinking Water we often find that contamination may be coming from the aquifer itself and or some kind of deficiency within the well casing as a result of corrosion. PCI Environmental not only offers Water Quality Testing but we can also deploy one of our inspectors to your home to actually insert a camera into the well casing to inspect for any deficiencies that could be the cause of contamination. Not only will a Well Casing Camera Inspection discover any catastrophic issues with your drilled well casing it will also enable us to inspect the water levels of your well but also it's depth.
Toxic chemicals found in New Baltimore, Mount Clemens, Ira Township drinking water
The Michigan Department of Environmental Quality found perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances, known as PFAS, in water in New Baltimore, Mount Clemens and Ira Township, MLive reported. The agency tested groundwater and treated drinking water in the area in January.
The department issued letters March 2 alerting residents to the presence of the substances, which have been used in non-stick cookware, stain resistant fabrics and firefighting foams. The chemicals have been linked to cancer, thyroid disorders, elevated cholesterol and other diseases.
State looks to lower acceptable levels of lead in drinking water
LANSING, Mich. - How much lead is too much lead in drinking water? That’s the driving question behind sweeping changes in how to keep drinking water safe statewide. The Michigan Department of Environmental Quality is hoping to update a decades old testing law called the lead and copper rule. The public had a chance to learn more at a meeting in Lansing Thursday. Some changes include lowering the acceptable amount of lead from fifteen parts per billion to ten. And require that cities know exactly where lead service lines are located and put a plan in place to start replacing all the service lines over time.
DEQ to begin testing 1,300 public water supplies for PFAS
Leeming says the biggest priorities are places where products such as firefighting foam containing PFAS have been used. The products containing PFAS aren't the problem, says Leeming, rather it’s how the chemicals are managed. “And if you use those best management practices right away, I think we can save ourselves a lot of future contamination concerns,” she said. Leeming says the DEQ will also begin to monitor fish for PFAS more closely. “Some communities already have advisories for how much fish people can eat from the lakes and rivers, but we’re going to be more intentional about this going forward,” she said.
