LANSING, Michigan — Senate Minority Leader Jim Ananich (D–Flint) today sent a letter to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requesting a formal review of the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality’s (MDEQ) oversight of water treatment in Flint, Michigan.

“We need an accurate and thorough investigation to determine whether the misapplication of federal water testing rules was intentional or due to negligence,” Sen. Ananich said. “Accountability is absolutely necessary to restoring Flint’s trust in our government. Our citizens deserve answers.”
