Flint residents are still being charged for LEAD POISONED WATER!
DETROIT (Reuters) – The Michigan Department of Environmental Quality will present a comprehensive plan to federal officials on Monday to test lead-contaminated drinking water in Flint, the Detroit Free Press reported.
The goal would be to come up with a reliable assessment for the water system by April 14, when Michigan’s state of emergency is set to expire, the paper said.
Officials at the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality could not be immediately reached for comment.
The financially strapped city was under the control of a state-appointed emergency manager when it switched its source of tap water from Detroit’s system to the nearby Flint River in April 2014, in order to save money.
Michigan Governor Rick Snyder has repeatedly apologized for the state’s poor handling of the issue. Seriously, Snyder’s ass needs to be handed a JAIL SENTENCE.
