Marc Edwards: The Water Crises in Flint and Washington, D.C.

Marc Edwards: The Water Crises in Flint and Washington, D.C.

Talks/Lectures
The 2001-2004 Washington D.C. water crisis, which exposed an unsuspecting population to high levels of lead, a potent neurotoxin, was perpetrated by multiple government agencies whose mission it was to protect public health. Marc Edwards collaborated with individuals in the public, press, and Congress to expose scientific misconduct and hold scientists and engineers accountable to the public good. When a similar crisis occurred in Flint, Michigan, Edwards' work caused officials to acknowledge that Flint residents had been harmed. These crises remind us that academics have an important role to play in confronting misconduct and environmental injustice.
