Water issues in the City of Flint have generated calls to our office regarding the City of Grand Blanc's water source. The City of Grand Blanc has its own groundwater wells and treatment plants. Our water is tested daily to ensure its safety and is filtered in a reverse-osmosis system before it is sent to homes and businesses. Residents of the City of Grand Blanc can be assured that their water does not come from the Flint River or the City of Flint water system. Yearly water reports are posted here on the website.
