City of Benton Harbor
Water Distribution

It is SMCAA’s belief that clean water is vital to the health of communities and that everyone has the right to safe, clean water.

Since September 30, 2021, SMCAA has been providing bottled water to the residents of the City of Benton Harbor following reports of elevated levels of lead in the city-supplied water. The State of Michigan is providing free bottled water as City residents are being encouraged to use bottled water for cooking, drinking, brushing teeth, rinsing foods, and mixing powdered infant formula.

In partnership with many community organizations, the following distribution site locations, days, and times have been confirmed through Saturday, December 4, 2021.  (A full list can be found towards the bottom of this page.)

SMCAA is in need of volunteers to help with these disbursement events. If you are able and willing, please visit our Volunteer Portal to sign up for a shift.
