A decision to temporarily move the city of Flint’s water supply from the City of Detroit to the Flint River led to unsafe levels of lead in Flint’s water supply. The decision was financially based as a temporary solution while a pipeline to Lake Huron was under construction. While the city’s water supply was redirected to the City of Detroit once high levels of lead contamination drew a public outcry, a call for new protocol in the decision process in similar situations was called for. This forum will look at developments since the Flint Water situation and the impact it is having in our communities.
