Existing Water Supply Assessments

An existing water supply system inspection is the observation, assessment, and documentation of an existing on-site water supply system. Water samples are taken to test for quality problems. Existing system inspections may also be required for certain State funded care programs. The existing system inspections are conducted by staff sanitarians from the Environmental Health Division to determine compliance with the local Superior Environmental Health Code as well as the Michigan Well Code Part127 – Act 368. Contact should be made with the appropriate Environmental Health Office (Hancock or Bessemer) to begin the process.
