State of Michigan starts series of water testing in Flint Community Schools

Many Flint schools still use donated bottled water at their kid’s school.
That’s why the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality began testing the pipes at those facilities.
"You drink bottled water at school too, don’t you?"
Schlinker’s grandson, Gavin, goes to Flint Community Schools.
He still can’t use the drinking fountain there, but a change could be around the corner.
The Michigan Department of Environmental Quality started a series of long-term water testing and flushing throughout the schools.
As leaders try to determine a long-term water solution for the District, Schlinker hopes it’s sooner than later.
They want to all agree that the water is safe before making any major changes in the way students get their water.
The plan will also rely heavily on school staff parents and students.
For Schlinker, he has his doubts on how soon he will feel safe with Gavin drinking anything but a bottle of h2o.
