Two Benton Harbor water filter distribution dates canceled

BENTON HARBOR, Mich. (WNDU) - The Berrien County Health Department has canceled two water filter distribution dates for Benton Harbor residents.

Both distribution Wednesday at the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services and Thursday's distribution at First Presbyterian Church have been canceled. Those distribution dates will be moved to next week.

Health officials tell our reporting partners at WSJM the events were canceled because of high demand and the winter weather.

A distribution site scheduled for this Friday at Benton Harbor Charter Academy is still open. Water filters are being handed out because some homes in the city tested positive for elevated lead levels.
