The Detroit radio station, WDET 101.9, invited me to talk about Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha’s book “What the Eye’s Don’t See,” the Flint Water Crisis, and the Michigan Lead and Copper Rule on Detroit Today with Stephen Henderson. This interview explains how I was able to bring visibility and recognition to the Flint Water Crisis based on my experience when I worked at EPA during the lead crisis in Washington, DC. It also explains how the Michigan Lead and Copper Rule provides better public health protection than the federal Lead and Copper Rule. Click here to take a listen.
