Flint Wants Safe Water, and Someone to Answer for Its Crisis

Date: January 9, 2016
Author: Mitch Smith
QUOTE: Shortly after officials switched the source of their drinking water to the Flint River from Lake Huron in April 2014 to save money, residents started complaining that their tap water looked strange, tasted bad and caused rashes. But not until the fall of 2015, when the water was found to have elevated levels of lead that were reflected in children’s blood, did state officials swing into action. Now they are scrambling to address a situation that has endangered the health of Flint’s children and generated untold costs and anxiety.
