OUR MISSION

The crisis began in 2014 when a state-appointed emergency manager switched Flint from Detroit water to Flint River water to save money. The corrosive water caused lead to leach from old pipes. Flint returned to the Detroit system in October after elevated lead levels were discovered in children.                    But officials remain                                  concerned that damaged pipes could continue to leach lead, which can                         cause behavior                                          problems and learning disabilities in children as well as kidney                                         ailments                                                in adults.

 

Gov. Rick Snyder declared a state of emergency in Flint earlier this month. President Barack Obama signed an emergency declaraton Jan. 16, 2016, but denied Snyder's request for a disaster declaration based on the legal requirement that such relief is intended for natural events, fires, floods or explosions.
