Congressman Dan Kildee: “Greater Transparency and Accountability” Needed to Restore Public Confidence in Flint Water Crisis

-

WASHINGTON, D.C. – November 19, 2015 – (RealEstateRama) — Congressman Dan Kildee (MI-05) today testified before a meeting of the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) National Drinking Water Advisory Council (NDWAC) about the Flint water crisis and changes to federal policy that can be made to promote transparency and accountability for city residents.

For months, Congressman Kildee has been advocating for immediate resources from the state and federal government to help victims of the crisis and make much-needed improvements to Flint’s water distribution system.

Last week, after Congressman Kildee’s request, the EPA announced that it would audit the state of Michigan’s water quality program after the state admitted it failed to use the correct protocols when it switched the city of Flint’s drinking water source. Previously, Congressman Kildee had also successfully pushed for federal technical advisors to come to Flint as well as for the creation of an EPA task force to provide expertise to the city and state.
