Right-Wing Governor’s Administration Falsified Documents, Rigged Tests In Flint Water Reports

On November 4, officials with the United States Environmental Protection Agency issued a dire warning for Flint, Michigan residents concerning the threat of a new, large-scale lead release into the city’s water supply.

In spite of the fact that the city’s water has been reconnected to the Detroit water supply, EPA officials say that the switch back is not likely to fix damage that has already been done. Instead the agency warns of an accumulation of lead within the city’s service lines, which has the potential to “release large amounts of scale and sediment that could pose an immediate and acute health hazard to the residents.”
