  The Flint Water Crisis  
(Special Event)

A talk by Virginia Tech's FlintWaterStudy team led by Marc Edwards.

Flint, MI is currently in a state of emergency because of unsafe drinking water and a resulting increase in childhood lead poisoning caused by a bad policy decision to save money.

Combining citizen science, laboratory experimentation, investigative reporting and social media, and backed by a National Science Foundation grant, the team of students and faculty pulled off an unprecendented scientific "relief effort" that helped expose a widespread lead-in-water problem and galvanized local, state, and federal efforts to protect Flint families and provide them safe drinking water.

The event is free and open to the public and will be live streamed at www.vt.edu.

Sponsored by the College of Engineering and Charles E. Via, Jr. Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering.


Location: Quillen Auditorium, Goodwin Hall
Price: free
