Grand Rapids Boasts Safe Water Supply
(*CORRECTION: Lead should be in micrograms/liter, not milligrams/liter)
Grand Rapids officials have the numbers to back up claims of a clean water supply. For a number of potential contaminants, including lead and other metals, the city consistently ranks far below the maximum limit Minnesota allows. If that number is passed, the water is not safe to drink. Grand Rapids water runs from underground wells to cleaning, softening and fluoride addition steps before it goes out to the public. Everything takes place in the city’s water treatment facility. The city pumps over 2 million gallons of water through its facility every day.
