City of Benton Harbor Clean Drinking Water

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 offering 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.
