Governor says he's "working hard" to resolve Flint water problems


Governor Snyder says the state is “working hard” and doing its best to resolve Flint’s water issues. 

Recent tests have raised alarms about high lead levels in city water — and in some Flint children’s blood. 

Snyder wouldn't offer specifics about possible action, but he will soon.

“There’s actions going on," he said. "But I think we’d rather make sure I can give you a longer list of the comprehensive actions we’re taking sometime during the week.” 

Flint Mayor Dayne Walling said last week the governor should “work harder” to resolve the water issues. 

Flint’s system has had repeated problems since it switched from Detroit to Flint River water in April 2014.
