After what was a nightmare scenario for the people of Flint Michigan, their lives are beginning to return to normal. We all know about the water crisis that hit the city and how a switch in water sources caused the city’s lead pipes to begin leaking lead into the water. This story broke at the end of 2015 and after a period of 6 months, it seems they may have found a solution. Filtered water.
“This is an important step forward for providing a stable water system for the City of Flint,” Tom Burke, head of the EPA’s research office, said in a statement. The EPA’s tests showed results of decreased levels of lead in the tap water. Low enough to be considered harmless for those at risk, pregnant women, and young children.
Michigan began providing in-house filters for residents at the start of the year. The EPA’s tests used the same filters to ensure the results met the expectation of reducing lead levels. “With the results of this testing, residents can be confident that they can use filtered water and protect their developing fetus or young child from lead,” added Nicole Lurie, head of preparedness and response at the Department of Health and Human Services
