Flint Water Crisis investigation to start over


The investigation into the Flint Water Crisis is changing gears.

The investigation was started by former Attorney General, Bill Schuette in 20-16 after lead contaminated Flint’s drinking water when the city switched its water sources. Earlier this year, new A-G Dana Nessel created a prosecution team to handle the multiple pending cases and investigation going forward. Now the team says it has concerns over how the investigation and cases were handled by the prior administration.

       The prosecution team is dismissing the charges against eight people – including former state top doctor Eden Wells and former Michigan Health and Human Services Director Nick Lyon. However, the charges can be refiled.
