Clean water and contaminated waste sites

August 8, 2013

The Detroit Water & Sewer Department (DWSD) easement that runs through
the G & H Landfill site contains a 96-inch clean water supply pipeline.
The clean drinking water supply line was constructed in 1967 and serves as
the main distribution from Lake Huron to the Detroit Municipal Water System.

* The DWSD 96 inch drinking water main has been completely submerged
by chemical groundwater/leachate on more than one occasion.*
Let’s hope there was no infiltration/inflow issues; it was built in 1967.
That’s a long time for leaks, cracks, splits, etc. to occur in the pipes.
People assume drinking water coming into their home is “clean”, “pure”, etc.
