- Flint, Michigan is pressing charges again the people responsible for the Flint water crisis.
- Lead poisoning has seeped into the water supply of Flint because water corrosion control chemicals were not added to the water.
- In 2014, when the crisis began, Flint switched their water supply from Detroit to the water from the Flint river.
Flint, Michigan is finally getting its retribution. Six state employees were criminally charged, this morning, in connection with the Flint water crisis. It appears that the town of Flint is finally throwing out its ‘dirty water.'
Three of the convicted are employees for the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, Corinne Miller, Nancy Peeler, and Robert Scott, as well as, Liane Shekter-Smith, Adam Rosenthal, and Patrick Cook of the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality.

The two lead attorneys who were handling the investigation, Attorney General Bill Schuette and Todd Flood, are holding a press conference at 11:30 this morning to discuss, in detail, the criminal charges. The only thing that can be said about Michigan's Attorney General Bill Schuette is that he follows his word. Back in April, Schuette announced the felony charges of two employees for the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality and on a official for the city of Flint. Then, all the way back in April, he claimed there would be more arrests. He delivered his promise.
Mike Glasgow, the city employee that was brought up on charges back in April pleaded no contest. He is now cooperating with the ongoing investigation, the other charges against him have been dropped. The two employees of Michigan's Department of Environmental Quality, Stephen Busch, and Mike Prysby are awaiting their preliminary hearings.
The problem with Flint's water is the over contamination of lead poisoning. The problem occurred when the water supply for the city was switched from Detroit to water from the Flint river that was treated at a local Water Treatment Plant. The problem could have been fixed if corrosion control chemicals had been added to the water supply, but in the end, it wasn't. Which resulted in, lead leaking into the water from pipes and fixtures causing it then be consumed by the people of Flint. Recently, dangerous levels of lead have been found in children.
They are taking this very seriously, and the people responsible for the mistake will be held responsible, one way or the other.
