Gov. Rick Snyder urges Flint residents to get water tested

Jan. 29, 2016

Gov. Rick Snyder today issued the following statement urging the people of Flint to get their water tested: 

"It is essential that all Flint residents have the water in their homes tested as soon as possible. Please make it a priority for your family and encourage your friends and neighbors to obtain testing kits as well. The kits are available free of charge at the water resource sites within Flint fire stations."

Water testing kits are available at city hall and all Flint fire stations. Residents don't need to test their own water - simply fill up the bottle and return it to where it was obtained. Residents with questions can call United Way 2-1-1.
