Beach Monitoring

Warm weather makes our local public swimming beaches a popular recreation choice. To be sure public bathing beaches are safe for swimming, the BLDHD partners with The Watershed Center Grand Traverse Bay to test nine public bathing beaches in the district for water quality during the summer swimming season.  The water is tested for the indicator organism E. coli each week.

Spring Well Maintenance

Private residential well owners, do you check for cracks and openings on your wellhead and well cap several times a year?  

As the weather warms up, remember to check and maintain your well to ensure safe drinking water for you and your family. A wellhead and well cap keep polluted rainwater, insects, and small animals from getting into the well. If these get in, it can make your water unhealthy.
