Mayor Weaver Responds after Data Released from Latest Round of Water Quality Tests at Flint Schools

(February 13, 2018) Flint, Mich – Mayor Karen Weaver issued the following statement today after reviewing the latest round of test results from water samples collected at Flint Community Schools:

“It’s encouraging to see that most of the water sample results are below the federal action level for lead. However, we cannot ignore that some of the sites tested show elevated lead levels, which leads us to believe there is still more work that needs to be done to make sure our kids are safe and not exposed to lead. As the testing continues, we have developed a plan to get more parents, teachers and members of the community involved to educate them on what these test results mean as efforts to get the lead out goes on. The City of Flint Technical Advisory Council is working to organize a series of community meetings, to share and review water quality test results and discuss what the data means. We want residents to be involved, and be part of the process as we work to resolve this issue. We should all be doing what we can to make sure our children are safe.”
