A recent published report included statewide lead levels in tap water from Michigan communities, prompted by the ongoing problems with Flint water. Department of Environmental Quality figures show Battle Creek's lead level well within acceptable counts.

Utilities Director Perry Hart updated WBCK this week on those efforts, as well as details on how the city goes about replacing lead water lines under city streets. In a visit last October, Hart talked about how Battle Creek gets its tap water, and the issue in Flint that prompted excessive lead in the water there.
