BENTON HARBOR, Mich. (WNDU) - The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services is issuing more bottled water to Benton Harbor residents.

The state is giving away free water as part of an effort to address lead levels. The health department encourages residents to use bottled water for not just drinking, but also for brushing teeth, rinsing food, and for mixing powdered infant formula.

If you were unable to pick up any bottled water Wednesday at the Abundant Life Church of God, you can pick up bottled water on Thursday, Oct. 14, at the Southwest Michigan Community Action Agency from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.

There is also a distribution planned for Friday, Oct. 15, at God’s Household of Faith, taking place from 2-6 PM.

The water is free. For more information on water delivery, call 211.
