Rogers City to conduct water testing with grant

ROGERS CITY, Mich. — Rogers City will soon run a water quality test thanks to help from a grant.

City Manager Joe Hefele signed the agreement Tuesday night, giving the city $450 thousand to test its pipes for lead and copper.

Hefele told WBKB the state grant will allow Rogers City to test their water system without breaking the bank. The tests will focus on the water mains and service lines.

“Rogers City does not believe it has lead or copper anywhere in its system. Current water department employees and those who have retired never found any lead or any lead material that would connect the service line to the main.”

Hefele said these tests will also determine whether the city needs a water line overhaul in the future.
