ABA: Who's To Blame for Poisoning of Flint Water?

For LeeAnne Walters, the first sign of trouble came in the summer of 2014, when her 4-year-old son Gavin developed rashes after coming into contact with the water. In July, Gavin and his twin, Garrett, both suffered scaly patches of skin that peeled after bathing. Several months later, Walters noticed her hair was falling out in large clumps that collected on her pillow and in the shower. Even her eyelashes were falling out. By that time, the water coming out of her faucet was a dark rust color. Michigan officials "made a deliberate decision not to use standard processing of the water to make it safe," says Michael Pitt of Royal Oak, who represents plaintiffs in several of the lawsuits. "Not only did they create the danger; they prolonged it," he says. "Unfortunately, people died because they lied," he adds, referring to residents struck by Legionnaires' disease. "And maybe some people are going to die from the lead poisoning." Pitt notes that a federal judge refused to dismiss a recent lawsuit alleging that officials with the Philadelphia Housing Authority created an environmental hazard that endangered residents in that city.
