Campus Drinking Water Testing Results

The University of Michigan-Flint is committed to keeping the campus community informed. As part of the University’s ongoing efforts to share information about campus water quality, the university has created this interactive map to provide up-to-date information with results of lead testing throughout campus. 

This map contains the results from the most current lead tests, conducted in May, 2016. Although we have included a category on the map labeled "Do not use," we are pleased to report that there are no results that fit this category. The vast majority of testing locations showed non-detectable levels of lead, even on unfiltered water. Every test showed lead levels not exceeding 5 parts per billion for filtered and unfiltered water—far below the federal standard of 15 parts per billion.

The University of Michigan-Flint has been regularly testing its water since the fall of 2014 and occurs quarterly. Water testing is conducted by Monarch Environmental Inc. (Brighton, MI) and analyzed by Brighton Analytical L.L.C. (Brighton, MI). Data reports from the lab are provided below. The University will continue to issue regular updates on the findings of its water testing.

Each dot on the map below shows the location of a water test. The dot is color coded to indicate water safety: 

  • Green: Water is safe. 
  • Yellow: Water is safe for intended use (hand-washing and/or bathing) but should not be used as a drinking water source because of possible elevated lead levels.
  • Red: Water source should not be used.
  • Gray: Water source is no longer in use. 

For more information on the test results at any location, simply click on the dot to see the most recent test results. Please note that the federal standard for lead levels in drinking water is a maximum of 15 parts per billion.
