FLINT (WJRT) - (09/30/15) – Governor Rick Snyder is talking Flint water in Lansing, but still one big question remains – will Flint switch back to the Detroit water system?
The move has been gaining momentum in Flint and Lansing.
Wednesday, Snyder was asked about the Flint water crisis at a press conference for the newly-appointed Michigan Supreme Court Justice.
He told reporters that he’s working with city, state and federal leaders to come up with a plan to get better quality water flowing to the people of Flint – faster.
Whether or not that means switching to the Detroit water system from the Flint River is still a mystery.
“It appears that lead levels could be higher, or have increased. What can be done to deal with that in an effective fashion. Again, were looking at making sure they’re within safe limits according to the Federal Government, and I would expect us to have more to talk about this subject before the end of the week,” Snyder said.
ABC12 News learned this week that Snyder had a hand in distributing 1,500 water filters to Flint homes about a month ago.
He confirmed that at least part of the state’s future involvement in the crisis will include bringing more of those filters to the people of Flint.
