Test Finds No Detectible Traces of Arsenic, Lead in Treated Drinking Water
July 20, 2017

Last week, a certified independent lab began conducting tests on 10 wells that supply water to MLGW’s Davis pumping station located in southwest Memphis. Tests were also conducted on the treated drinking water which goes into MLGW’s distribution system.

Initial test results had some traces of lead in two wells which prompted more samples to be pulled. Test results on the second samples from the two wells indicated that lead was below detection limits.

All wells and drinking water leaving the station tested below detected limits for arsenic.

Below are the arsenic and lead test results from the certified independent lab.
