Message from City Manager, Aaron Desentz
In light of issues that the City of Flint has been struggling with regarding lead levels in their municipal water system, the City of Leslie would like to reassure its water utility customers that the City is in complete compliance with the Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) standards for safe drinking water. The City treats the municipal water system with phosphates which block corrosion of lead and copper water lines. In September 2015 the City of Leslie conducted lead/copper testing of the municipal water system. In January 2016 the City conducted additional sample collection at the request of the DEQ to expand its sample size and ensure that the Ctiy's water source is not at risk of high levels of lead and/or copper. All of those tests indicated that the City's water source is not at risk of high levels of lead and/or copper. The city continues to work with industry experts and the DEQ to remedy the ongoing iron sediment issue that has been reported.
If you have any questions, please contact the City Offices at (517) 589-8236
