Researchers announce updates on Flint water quality studies
"FLINT, Mich. – Four civil and environmental engineering professors held a news conference Tuesday morning to announce research findings on Flint’s water quality.
Professor Marc Edwards, leader of the Virginia Tech Flint Water Study team who has been working with Flint residents since April 2015, was joined by David Reckhow, professor at the University of Massachusetts, and Shawn McElmurry, associate professor at Wayne State University in Detroit, to discuss their independent data.
According to Edwards, preliminary data looking at the effects of a water flushing program are encouraging. Residents have been told to flush out their pipes once a day to help rid the system of lead."
