State of Michigan Commitment to City of Flint

State of Michigan Commitment to City of Flint

  • The State of Michigan remains committed to supporting the City of Flint as it continues to recover and rebuild. The state provided more than $300 million to Flint, in addition to the $100 million from the federal government – all of which is helping with water quality improvements, pipe replacement, healthcare, food resources, educational resources, job training and creation, and more.

    Flint Water Quality Update
    For over a year Flint's water has been meeting federal standards. The water is now testing at 7 parts per billion (ppb) which is much lower than the federal requirement of 15 ppb. Flint's water is one of the most monitored and testing the same as similar cities across the state and country.

    Reduction of State Run PODS (Points of Distribution)

    Transition from bottled water to filtered water status.

    Why are some of the PODs closing?
    A partnership between Governor Rick Snyder, Mayor Karen Weaver, Concerned Pastors for Social Action and communty leaders, will allow for the continuation of four water sites in each area of the city for the foreseeable future. While water quality has been restored, this helps provide residents additional time to prepare for the ultimate transition to filtered water.

    Use a filter
    Filter use is encouraged while pipe replacement is underway.  Community Outreach & Education Program (CORE) teams are going door-to-door ensuring homes have properly installed and maintained filters, and faucet replacement if needed. Call CORE at 810-238-6700.
