In 2014, Flint, Michigan switched their water source to the Flint River but did not provide corrosion control treatment. Residents started to notice health issues, discolored water, and strange smells coming from their faucets.
Three years later, there are still many unanswered questions and people who cannot access potable water from their tap.
Learn about the efforts of the Virginia Tech Flint Water Study team, the high lead levels that remain in Flint’s water, and what’s next!
This lecture is free and open to the public. For more information, call 610-268-2153, ext. 288 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
