State task force member speaks about Flint water crisis

epa logoA task force appointed by the Governor has laid most of the blame for the Flint water crisis on bad decisions by state departments like the Department of Environmental Quality.

Task force member Chris Kolb says the D-E-Q completely missed the boat when it allowed Flint not to use corrosion control for its drinking water.

The report also criticized the state’s emergency manager law, because it allowed non-elected officials to ignore public complaints about the water.
