The East Lansing-Meridian Water/Sewer Authority (ELMWSA) sets policy concerning the management, supervision and control of the water production facilities for East Lansing and Meridian Township. Members are required to have training in fields related to water production and management.
The Authority consists of three members appointed by the Meridian Township Board and three appointed by the City Council who meet monthly.
In response to the incident that required a Boil Water Advisory to be issued in early August 2016, the East Lansing Meridian Water and Sewer Authority has filed a report with the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality that outlines preventative steps that will be taken to reduce the likelihood of future emergencies.
