Water Issues

Title_Water_Issues.png

 

Across Michigan there are issues of water pollution, groundwater contamination, lead, and beach closures.  Many of these issues are also connected to the problems of fish contamination across the state.  This is a compiled list of our communities that are affected by the same issues across Michigan.  We are all connected by these issues and can work together to fix them.

Beach Closures

Beach closures are caused by high bacteria levels in our waterways from different contaminates with official causes listed as: wildlife, storm water runoff, sanitary sewer overflow, sewage, rainfall, E.coli, and "unknown".  Exposure to these bacteria can come from swallowing contaminated water, via open wounds, and in other cases from contact with skin or eyes.  There are two different kinds of sewage systems, combined and sanitary sewers which contain and collect rainwater, sewage, industrial wastewater, human and industrial waste, toxic materials, other debris which are oftentimes untreated or partially treated.  Some causes of sewage overflows include problems like system overloads from stormwater, lines breaks, and blockages.  Additional contaminates from factory farming can also cause beach closures including contaminates like nitrogen, phosphorus, pathogens, hormones, antibiotics, and other organic fecal matter or sediments.  These can also contribute to algae blooms from cyanobacteria.  Algae blooms are more toxic to humans and side effects can be more severe in pets, children, seniors, and those with weakened immune systems, or prior kidney and liver disease.

Documented side effects of exposure include, but are not limited to:  

Diarrhea

Encephalitis

Fever

Gastroenteritis

Headache

Hepatitis

Infections (primarily ear, eye, nose, or throat)

Nausea

Rashes

Respiratory infections

Stomachache and cramps

Vomiting

Fish Advisories

Many fish in Michigan's waterways have been affected by pollutants dumped both legally and illegally for decades.  Many of these chemicals bioaccumulate making larger fish and bottom-feeding fish more hazardous, and can affect human health by eating them.  Examples of substances in our water systems that affect fish and humans are mercury, toxaphene, dioxins, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), dichlorodiphenyl-trichloroethane (DDT), perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOs/PFAs/PFCs), and selenium.  There may be other substances in our waterways that are not tested by the DNR that may cause health problems.  In many cases, due to bioaccumulation, fish have a limit to how many can be eaten by a person per month or per year to not incur health problems.  In some cases, fish are marked as "limited" for people with existing health problems, children and women who are soon-to-be pregnant, pregnant, or breastfeeding.  In other cases, fish are marked as "Do Not Eat" due to the likelihood that eating even one fish could lead to future health problems.  There are some waterways that are not tested, and all state-wide fish listed by the DNR have limits on how many should be eaten per month or year, with the smallest being the Bluegill with mercury concerns at 8/month, and the largest being the Muskellunge also with mercury concerns at 1/month.  The other chemical sometimes found in statewide fish are PCBs.  13.2% of waterways have at least one type of fish marked "Limited" and 10.9% of waterways have at least one type of fish marked "Do Not Eat".

Documented side effects of eating toxic fish include, but are not limited to:  

DDT (Present in 1.4% of tested waterways)

Cancer

Diabetes

Dioxins (Present in 5.6% of tested waterways)

Cancer

Fertility problems

Thyroid issues

Mercury (Present in 92.8% of tested waterways)

Developmental issues of the brain in fetuses and infants

Title_Lead.png

Lead Poisoning

There has been an increase in testing for blood lead levels in children across the state after the Flint Water Crisis became public, but that does not make this issue of lead poisoning any less serious if that is the reason for higher findings.  Lead poisoning can be contracted from air pollution, water pollution, toys, lead paint and lead dust in homes, and contaminated soil.  There is no safe level of lead and lead exposure cannot be corrected.  Lead poisoning is also epigenetic and once in the body is stored in bone.

Documented side effects of exposure for children and babies include, but are not limited to:

Abdominal pain

Attention disorders

Constipation

Damage to kidneys

Damage to the nervous system

Death

Developmental delays

Fatigue

Hearing loss

Irritability

Learning difficulties

Loss of appetite

Lowered birth weights

Lowered IQ

Premature births

Seizures

Slowed growth

Vomiting

Weight loss

 

Communities with children under 6 that have tested with elevated lead levels in their blood include:

Title_PFAs.png

^Polyfluoroalkyl and Perfluorinated Chemicals

PFA's also known as PFC's are polyfluoroalkyl and perfluorinated chemicals or substances such as perfluoroctanoic acid (PFOA), perfluorooctanesulfonic acid or perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS) that are toxic to humans and have been used by industries across Michigan without proper oversight for decades.  Once ingested these chemicals stay in the blood and is found in at minimum 2% of fish in tested Michigan waterways.  There are currently 28 counties across Michigan with known PFA contamination, amounting to 1/3 of the state affected by these toxic chemicals.  We are currently paying very close attention to local communities that are investigating cancer clusters around the state and their relation to this contamination.  

 

As of August 4, 2018 - there is an emergency DO NOT EAT warning for all fish in the Huron River in Oakland County including Kent Lake and all other lakes connected to the Huron River in Oakland County.  

As of July 31, 2018 - High levels of PFAs have been found in Kalamazoo County with contamination found in Parchment groundwater and in 3 pumping stations in Kalamazoo.

 

If you believe your community is affected and is not on this list, please email platform@kurland4mi.com

 

Documented side effects of exposure include, but are not limited to:  

Developmental issues in fetuses and infants

Difficulty conceiving

High Cholesterol

Hormonal interference

Immune system damage

Increased risk for cancer - specifically kidney and testicular cancers 

Negative effects in growth, learning, and behavior of infants and older children

Pregnancy-induced hypertension

Thyroid problems

Ulcerative colitis

Water Withdrawals

Nestle Waters, North America currently pays $200 for its intensive water withdrawal in northern Michigan compared to Coca Cola Refreshments USA Inc's fee of $1.1 million in 2016 for water usage fees to the City of Detroit.  Nestle bottles water mainly under the Ice Mountain brand in Evart, and the profits made by the company just from our state's natural resources alone are over $340 million annually.  Local residents have documented lowering water tables of their groundwater supplies and other waterways over the years.  The CEO of Nestle is on record as believing that water is not a human right, and that the privatization of water supplies for corporate profits is acceptable.  Residents have been in a legal fight with the company over its permits to pump and are continuing to fight for the preservation of our natural resources.  In Wayne County, Pepsi Bottling Group LLC and Coke also purchase large amounts of water for the purposes of bottling and selling products, approximately 113 and 105 million gallons respectively, but both return approximately half in wastewater, compared to the 396 million gallons withdrawn with none returned to the water table by Nestle in 2015 alone.  There are numerous other companies across the state of Michigan bottling and selling water without proper oversight or regulations, many of whom are using loopholes within the Great Lakes compact to do so.  

Documented side effects of water withdrawals include, but are not limited to:  

Damage to wetlands

Lowering of groundwater tables

Lowering of lakes, rivers, and streams

Warming of the shallower water

Title_Waterborne_Disease.png

Waterborne Diseases

There have recently been waterborne disease outbreaks across Michigan potentially caused by problems with our water and sewer system, and/or connected to water shutoffs.  The history of and reason why we have public water and sewer systems is to prevent these kinds of diseases.  There have been numerous studies over the years showing that waterborne diseases are more prevalent in areas that lack access to clean water, and in 2017 a study by We the People of Detroit Community Research Collective and Henry Ford Health System in Detroit narrowed this prevalence of increased waterborne diseases down to the neighborhood block level.  The problems with mass water shutoffs in Detroit began in 2014 connected to Detroit's bankruptcy.  Local Detroit activists have connected these mass shutoffs to neighborhoods also affected by austerity policies and gentrification.  In August of 2016, 25% of residential customers in the City of Detroit were scheduled for shutoffs with an additional 18% who were on payment plans.  Both the cities of Detroit and Flint have been faced with exponentially increasing water rates while both also have had increasing poverty rates.  In 2016, the contract afforded to the contractor shutting off residents (Homrich) was $6 million, compared to the $4.5 million that was budgeted for public assistance with water rates.  That same year, businesses in Detroit owed $41 million in overdue water bills while residents owed $26 million and the State of Michigan owed $1 million.  In the three years between 2013 and 2016, Detroit Water and Sewerage Department (DWSD) shut off access to water to over 100,000 residents, over 50% of their 175,000 residential customers in the city as of 2016.  While just over half of the overdue bills were residential, and many businesses had much larger overdue bills, 97% of the shutoffs in Detroit just in 2016 alone were to residents, and in some instances entire neighborhoods had their access to water shut off by the city.  The United Nations visited Detroit, toured these affected neighborhoods, declared the City to be in violation of their Declaration of Human Rights, and that these shutoffs were creating more homelessness due to the connection to tax foreclosures.  The State of Michigan received $188 million from the federal Hardest Hit Fund, yet used some to tear down homes rather than use them towards prevention of foreclosures (what it was intended to be for).  Despite this, Detroit has already slated 17,000 residences to be shut off from access to water in the coming months of 2018.  For more history on Detroit's water shutoffs click here.  In Flint, residents still do not have access to clean, safe drinking water after the state alongside local officials switched residents over to the Flint River in order to build the KWA pipeline and sell $220 million worth of bonds.  Over the same timeframe as Detroit, residents of Flint have also been threatened with water shutoffs.  Many residents have not been paying their water bills as a form of civil disobedience, have yet to be made whole, and are already suffering from health problems due to drinking raw water from the Flint River that has contaminates such as Mercury and PCBs and lead that was leached from their pipes due to this corrosive water that already caused a Legionnaire's outbreak during the crisis.  Due to this crisis not being fixed, and a majority of residents with a higher proportion of health problems from their exposure during the crisis, citizens of Flint are at a higher risk for waterborne disease outbreaks.  Waterborne diseases include Hepatitis A, Legionnaire's Disease, and MRSA (methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus).  Every community in Michigan is at risk due to our aging water and sewer infrastructure, and many communities across the state have reported main breaks and boil water advisories.  Some boil water advisories may also be related to sewage overflows.

 

Hepatitis A*

Recent health issues include over 527 cases of Hepatitis A across Michigan in 2017 causing at least 20 deaths.  This disease is found in feces, and can be spread by eating contaminated food, contaminated water, and through sexual contact.  It is highly contagious and that risk is increased with shared living space with an infected person.  There is potential for this outbreak to also be connected to the opioid epidemic.  There was a marked increase in Hepatitis A cases for people who work in the food service industry.  *It is important to note that there is a vaccine for Hepatitis A which may be available at your county health department.  In March of 2018, there has been a confirmed case of Hepatitis A in Flint's City Lockup.

Documented side effects of Hepatitis A include, but are not limited to:

Abdominal pain

Chills

Clay-colored stool

Dark urine

Diarrhea

Fever

Jaundice (yellowing of the skin and eyes)

Liver failure

Nausea

Vomiting

Legionnaire's Disease (Legionella)^

Risk for Legionnaire's Disease can spike during warm months and the average number of cases during warm summer months are 30.  This disease made national headlines in 2015 after news broke of the Flint Water Crisis and a Legionnaire's outbreak in Genesee County that went unreported to the public resulting in at least 12 deaths and nearly 100 cases.  In June and July of 2017 there were 73 confirmed cases of Legionnaire's Disease in the Metro Detroit area.  The legionella bacteria is found naturally in freshwater lakes and streams, but is also found in man-made water systems.  This disease is transmitted via the inhalation of water vapor or mist, not through personal contact and can be treated with antibiotics.  ^Symptoms appear between 2 days and 2 weeks after exposure and after antibiotic treatment full recovery can happen in 2-4 months.  Outbreaks of the disease are generally associated with complex water systems in buildings or structures like hotels, health-care facilities, cruise ships, and public water systems and likely sources for infection include in water used for showering, hot tubs, decorative fountains, and central air-conditioning cooling towers.  Different causes can create conditions that support the growth of this bacteria including warm water, stagnant water, low levels of disinfectants, and water areas that are not cleaned or maintained properly.  A major factor that can cause outbreaks in public water systems is that chlorine may react with heavy metals like lead and iron alongside other organic materials from raw water, which may then decrease the amount of chlorine available in water systems to kill the bacteria.  There are no federal laws that currently protect consumers from Legionella.  

People who are at a higher risk of getting ill or dying from the disease include seniors, current and former smokers, those who have weakened immune systems, chronic lung disease, or who take immunosuppressant drugs.  1 out of every 10 people with this disease will die form complications, but 1 out of 4 will die if the disease was caught at a healthcare facility.  Legionnaire's is also a likely under-diagnosed disease according to the CDC.

Pontiac Fever is a milder form of Legionella caused by the same bacteria, and there were further cases of this disease in 2017 in the Metro Detroit Area.  This disease also manifests with flu-like symptoms that generally resolve on their own and is diagnosed most often when known cases of legionnaire's disease are diagnosed in the same area.  Symptoms and side-effects of this disease include fever and muscle aches, appear 1-2 days after exposure, and go away without treatment after a few days.  The origins of this disease were from an outbreak in Pontiac, Michigan in 1968.

Documented side effects of Legionnaire's Disease include, but are not limited to:

Chest pain

Chills

Confusion

Cough

Death

Diarrhea

Fever

Headaches

Lung failure

Muscle aches

Nausea

Pneumonia

Shortness of breath

Stomach pain

 

Counties that have been affected by this outbreak include:
