City reaches deadline for new EPA recommendations

Posted: Updated:
FLINT, MI (WNEM) -

Today is the city of Flint's final day to make changes to its water system under new recommendations from the EPA but city leaders say today may not be the day.

Utilities Chief Jolisa McDay said the caustic soda the EPA recommends may sit and eat away at the protective coatings in the pipe system.

Mayor Karen Weaver said a temporary chemical feed system should be in place by today but they plan to consult with state and federal regulators first.
