FLINT (WJRT) - (10/01/15) - Action is expected by the state regarding Flint's water crisis Friday afternoon.
The city remains under a public health emergency, just declared Thursday. It essentially means if you get water from the city of Flint, do not drink it. County health officials say it is not safe to consume due to high levels of lead.
State leaders will join city and federal officials Friday afternoon to announce their own action plan for Flint's water emergency at a press conference hosted by Kettering University. ABC12 will be there to listen in.
Until we learn what that solution is, it's advised you drink bottled water from this point on. If you have a filter or plan to get one, it should bear the certified "NSF" logo, which stands for National Sanitation Foundation.
The essential seal means it's approved for efficiently lowering those dangerous levels of lead.
At the most risk are children under the age of 5, pregnant women and some older adults with health complications.
The State of Michigan tells ABC12 they're committed to helping with both short and long-term solutions.
