Detroit Water and Sewerage Department (DWSD) reports the city's water sampling results are under the Lead and Copper Rule action level

DWSD’s water quality continues to meet the requirements of Michigan’s revised Lead and Copper Rule, the most stringent in the nation. And, there has been no confirmed case in the city of Detroit where a child tested with elevated blood lead levels and the sole source was drinking water.
