Premise Plumbing Investigation Pilot Program
The Premise Plumbing Investigation Program, in partnership with United Way, Department of Environmental Quality and the Plumbers Union, helps homeowners safeguard against the negative effects of the Flint Water Crisis.
A Habitat representative will visit your home to perform a preliminary water test. If lead levels exceed 15ppb, the homeowner will be provided a sample kit to drop off at City Hall, which will be submitted to the Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ). If submitted sample still exceeds 15ppb, actions will be taken to resolve the issue, including fixture, or full plumbing replacement where necessary.
Household income must be below 250% AMI (Area Median Income) and have a lead level at or above 15ppb
Households below 50% AMI may also qualify for water heater replacement through G-CARD Call 810-787-0199 for more information on G-CARD's Water Heater Replacement Program.
For more information, or to schedule water testing call (810)766-9089 ext. 213 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
