Flint, Michigan Water Contamination The House Oversight and Governmental Reform Committee held its second hearing on the contaminated drinking water in Flint, Michigan. Susan Hedman, former Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regional director, told committee members the lead contamination should have never happened, and that the EPA had nothing to do with the corrosive water. Committee Chair Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) argued that the EPA had the opportunity to make the appropriate response but did not. Flint’s former mayor and the city’s former emergency manager testified that they were not aware of lead in the water until January 2015. Ms. Hedman confirmed that corrosion control systems to reduce the lead were not put in place until December 9, 2015. close
