Have You Ever Looked Into Spring Water Benefits?

At this time, the area of concern remains properties between the former Wurtsmith Air Force Base and Van Etten Lake, and properties between Van Etten Lake and Lake Huron, from the US 23/F-41 split north to Chippewa Road. Previously only wells around the base were of concern. Environmental Health Director/Deputy Health Officer Chuck Lichon said it is hard to predict if the pollution, which came from firefighting chemicals used by the Air Force, is spreading. There is no way to predict at the current time where the plume will extend, he said It will extend to Lake Huron, we know that, but you

The water is flushed from the pipes at the complex each morning to rid it of as much loose iron and other elements as possible.
