Drinking Water

Every community needs a clean source of drinking water. More than 44 percent of Michigan’s residents rely on groundwater as their primary source of drinking water. Here at MSU, groundwater is our only source of drinking water. MSU’s 18 production wells are drawing groundwater from the Saginaw Aquifer, which covers a large portion of the Lower Peninsula. MSU’s Wellhead Protection Program received the 2015 Exemplary Wellhead Protection Program award for a medium-sized system by the Michigan Section of the American Water Works Association.
