Michigan Gov. Snyder welcomes Flint water recommendations

DETROIT, MI (WLNS) – Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder says he welcomes the work of an advisory panel that has recommended steps the state should take to get reliable drinking water back to Flint residents.

The recommendations Friday came a day after the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency told the state and city that their efforts so far had failed. The agency ordered them to ensure the safe operation of Flint’s drinking water system and the protection of public health.

The Flint Water Advisory Task Force says its recommendations are more detailed and comprehensive than what the EPA ordered.

Snyder says the state will move quickly to determine “the best way to achieve the results.”

High levels of lead have been detected in Flint’s water since the city switched from the Detroit municipal system and began drawing from the Flint River as a cost-saving measure.
