Michigan DEQ admits to mistakes handling Flint water crisis

mdeqThe Department of Environmental Quality has released a statement admitting they made a mistake in handling the recent Flint water crisis.

DEQ representatives said they mishandled the testing of Flint’s drinking water. They were holding the city to guidelines meant for a town with half of Flint’s population.

The DEQ has decided to replace the former director of the Office of Drinking Water and Municipal Assistance with Chief-Deputy director Jim Sygo.

Governor Rick Snyder has called for an independent inspection of the Flint water crisis.
