LAKE MILLS — When the lead-tainted water in Flint, Michigan came to the public eye in 2015, it prompted Lake Mills residents to voice concerns with the city’s test results indicating how much lead was found in the tap water.
According to an April 2016 story from The Associated Press, 90% of the city’s lead levels in 2015 were 160 parts per billion – 10 times the amount allowed by the Environmental Protection Agency. The EPA rules require 90% of water samples must have lead concentrations under 15 parts per billion.
“The worst of the samples, which were gathered from taps in 40 homes last fall, tested at 870 parts per billion,” the AP story reported.
