No End in Sight for Flint; Filter Use Expected to Last Rest of Year

It has been 347 days since the City of Flint declared its lead-tainted water unsafe to drink straight from the tap, and 250 days since Gov. Rick Snyder put the city into a state of emergency.

.

But the federal Environmental Protection Agency’s top official on the ground in Flint doesn’t expect current water restrictions to end anytime soon.

.

Mark Durno, deputy chief of the EPA’s emergency response branch, said in an interview that barring extraordinary improvement in water quality this fall, it is likely that the city will remain on filters through at least the rest of the year.

.

“I wouldn’t think so now,” Durno said of the idea of lifting the filter restriction before another round of water testing is complete in December. “We’re going to be where we are now for the rest of the calendar year” unless lead levels drop more dramatically than expected.

.

The uncertainty about filters is just one sign of how cloudy the end of the Flint water crisis remains.

.

Since fall 2015, when local and state officials acknowledged the city’s water contamination and moved to change the city’s water source back to Detroit’s water system, Flint’s water quality and lead levels have generally been improving. That’s according to government testing and independent sampling by Virginia Tech professor  Marc Edwards, credited with bringing widespread attention to the city’s lead-contaminated water.

.

In June, officials buoyed by improving water quality removed restrictions on pregnant women and small children, who had been warned to use bottled water only. Filtered tap water can now be consumed by all city residents, say state and federal officials as well as outside experts.

Among the challenges are  the unprecedented length, scope and intensity of the damage cause by corrosive water moving through the city’s water system for nearly 18 months. Other factors include the intense spotlight on the city by federal regulators as well as missteps in a previous lead crisis (in a different city) that prompted officials to declare victory prematurely.

.

I don’t know if residents will ever trust the water coming out of their tap again unless the pipes are replaced. How can you expect anyone to take the word of experts and test results when we were lied to for so long?” said state Senate Minority Leader Jim Ananich, D-Flint. who raised some of the earliest red flags in the crisis and has been critical at times of the state’s approach to recovery.
