EPA open house targets Flint water crisis

Posted: Updated:
FLINT, MI (WNEM) -

Frustrated and just downright over it; that's how Flint resident Jeannette Brown feels about the ongoing water crisis in the vehicle city.

"My hair is falling out," said Brown. "My skin is itching. I couldn't wash my dishes. I couldn't take a shower."

That's why she decided to go to an Environmental Protection Agency open house in the city on Saturday to get questions answered about installing a filter.

"We wanted to do outreach to the community," explained Robert Kaplan, acting regional administrator for the EPA. "One stop shopping and get all the questions answered on a one to one basis."

Kaplan said things are moving in the right direction.
He pointed to evidence that lead testing results are showing an improvement.

"There's really good news actually," said Kaplan. "The system is recovering.

That's music to Brown's ears.
