DETROIT– The state of Michigan has failed to take adequate steps to ensure safe drinking water in all Flint public school buildings, the ACLU of Michigan announced Monday during a media briefing in Detroit.

The ACLU of Michigan and Education Law Center also released today a letter sent on January 5th to the Michigan Attorney General’s office calling for prompt action by the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) to protect the health and safety of thousands of children who attend school in Flint Community School (FCS) buildings, along with teachers, staff and parents who work in and visit those buildings every day.

In addition, noting the “Flint Water Summit” scheduled in Chicago happened Tuesday by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Michigan DEQ, Flint community leaders and medical and technical experts say the State has not made public sufficient data to conclude that the Flint city water is safe to drink for all residents.
