    The new Karegnondi Water Authority plant is located near
    Columbiaville, Michigan in Lapeer County.

    Here is the 2016 Water Quality Report for Columbiaville:

    http://columbiaville.org/secure/uplo...de=transparent

    The reported fluoride in Columbiaville water, which was
    well water at the time, was over 1.0 ppm.

    Also check the level of chlorine in this report.

    It was 1.5 parts per million (ppm or milligrams per liter)
    and the low end value of the range was 0.88 ppm.

    I am now selecting a random NON - Michigan utility for comparison purposes...Seattle, Washington, for comparisons of fluoride statements
    of quantity of fluoride to be added and then the actual fluoride measured in their Water Quality Report.

    First, what Seattle says it will add is 0.7 ppm.

    http://www.seattle.gov/util/MyServic...ride/index.htm

    Then, checking a recent annual Water Quality Report, one finds
    that the fluoride for their two separate sources is listed as 0.7 ppm,

    http://www.seattle.gov/util/cs/group...t/1_063972.pdf

    and the fluoride range is 0.6 to 0.9 ppm.

    n their chlorine residual reads 0.98 ppm.

    Here is a 2016 Water Quality Report for Royal Oak Township.
    Look closely at the amount of fluoride reported to be present
    in the water for Royal Oak Township.

    Here is a 2016 Water Quality Report for Auburn Hills.
    Again, check the ppm of fluoride reported to be present.

    The City of Royal Oak has a 2017 Water Quality Report that
    breaks out lab results by water treatment plant:

    This one is from the City of Taylor (or its Golf Course! )

    Fluoride - 0.54 ppm.

    Residual Chlorine - 0.67 ppm.

    One of the selling points for Karegnondi Water Authority water
    is that they have two separate supplies, treated water and
    raw water. The advantage for raw water is to industries so that
    they will not have to treat their water supply to remove the
    chemicals.

    protecting and building our economy":

    It is possible that GLWA is catering more to the industrial
    customers, in competition with the Karegnondi Water Authority
    maybe even, than to public health in the matter of fluoride in
    the water.

    The City of Monroe, as deduced from its 2017 Water Quality Report,
    targets 0.7 ppm fluoride and 1.0 ppm chlorine residual.

    Again for the sake of comparison, this is the Water Quality Report
    for Windsor, Canada. There is little fluoride in their water because
    it is not added in. There is no mention of residual chlorine. They
    do use ozone to disinfect their water.

    There was an earlier thread in DetroitYes about the fluoride
    in the water in Windsor, Canada.

    https://www.detroityes.com/mb/showth...To-Their-Water

    Following up on that one:

    (This is DWSD not GLWA) The lead pipe replacements in
    Detroit as of right now are to be partial replacements rather
    than the preferable full replacements:

    I wonder if the Rain Gauge data collected by MacombCounty for the issue of stormwater in the INTERCEPTOR will become public info ?

    Nobody wants to pay for rain - but they pay -- ohhh do they pay !!!

    Some may remember this story in the newspapers

    (Ahem, am still dilly dallying about calculating a working
    estimate of what a drainage charge for an inch of rainwater
    per square foot should be...but did not forget it entirely.)

    In today's NON Detroit news, but helpful for comparisons and contrasts
    with regional water matters including GLWA and the Flint water crisis,
    there is a well written if slightly sensationalized New York Times article about problems in recent years with the Newark water supply:
