The City of Escanaba is proud to report their drinking water has never violated any water quality standards. According to the annual drinking water quality report, this past year Escanaba??s water met all U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and State drinking water health standards.
The city gets their drinking water from Little Bay de Noc. Contaminants in the water source, and the use of the surrounding land, lead the State of Michigan to consider Escanaba??s drinking water as highly susceptible to contamination. However, officials said the city??s effective treatment procedure continues to provide safe water to drink, while adding fluoride daily to prevent tooth decay.
