The quality of drinking water for the City of Grand Ledge is an inconvenience, not a health risk, Public Service Director Larry LaHaie said. Many residents believe they are paying too much to be inconvenienced. The city has a multistep water treatment process that removes iron and adds fluoride, LaHaie said. “The treatment process, we pump it from wells and then it goes through an iron removal process, where actually it’s aerated and the dissolved iron in the water then bonds with the oxygen so that it can be filtered through, it’s like a sand filter almost,” he said. https://soundcloud.com/user-185485168/larry-lahaie-1
“After that it is chlorinated for disinfection and we add phosphate for corrosion control,” he said.
