LANSING, Mich. (WOOD) - Several West Michigan municipalities have been awarded a state grant to protect public water supplies.
Across the state, 45 communities received part of $500,000 through the Wellhead Protection Grant Program, according to the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality.
Driving water for nearly half of Michigan's households comes from groundwater. The grants help protect those public groundwater supply systems from contamination, the DEQ says.
The funding goes toward identifying potential contaminants, putting protection strategies into place and running educational activities.
