Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Dailycaller.com: “‘Violation’: Michigan Says The City Of Flint’s Mayor Hasn’t Bothered To Do Basic Tests Of Its Water For Lead”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Michigan’s environmental agency issued a violation notice to Flint in August and said the Michigan city has not done basic testing of its water for lead levels.

“The city of Flint (City) is in violation of the Safe Drinking Water Act” because it has not properly tested its water and reported the results, the state said in an Aug. 16 letter from Michigan’s Department of Environment, Great Lakes and Energy (EGLE). The letter was from EGLE’s water director to Flint’s director of public works.

“The City was out of compliance on July 1, 2019. To return to compliance, the City must collect samples from 60 confirmed Tier 1 sites … have them analyzed for lead and copper; and submit the analysis reports to” EGLE, said the letter obtained Daily Caller News Foundation.

The letter said EGLE previously gave the city 14 days to respond, but that it did not. “There is no fine for this violation; however, failure to conduct monitoring, as required during the second six-month round of 2019, will result in a fine of $1,000 per day,” the letter said.

In addition to not testing many sites, the city did not specify if the tests it did submit were from areas with lead pipes or not, making the results useless, it said.
