Congressman holding telephone town hall about Flint water

FLINT, Mich. (AP) -

Congressman Dan Kildee is holding a telephone town hall for Flint residents featuring experts who can discuss the city's water problems.

The Michigan Democrat's call-in event takes place Wednesday night. He says it will offer an update about ongoing efforts to improve water quality. Experts, including those who helped draw attention to Flint's water problems, are expected to take questions from residents.

Kildee, who represents the Flint area, and state Senate Minority Leader Jim Ananich of Flint said last week they asked U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to answer questions after elevated blood-lead levels were found in children whose Flint homes received river water.

Flint switched from Detroit's water system last year in a cost-cutting move. The city has reconnected in hopes of resolving the health emergency.
