  • Water quality and public health
  • Joan Rose attended the public hearing on Flint's water quality on January 21, 2015. She says cloudy and colored water is not related to total trihalomethane (TTHM) as expected, but more likely related to Flint's old transmission pipes. The combination of the change in source water and disinfection may be causing materials to slough off the pipes, but more water testing is warranted. "You're so intimate with water. You drink it. You wash with it. You bathe in it," she said. "You can't blame anyone for the frustration. Everyone wants safe and wholesome water."
