[Complete Dataset] Lead results from Tap Water Sampling in Flint, MI

We have been getting requests to release our lead-in-water analysis from samples collected via the remarkable citizen science effort in Flint and, therefore, are making available the complete dataset. We also offer a comparison of lead results from select homes where both Virginia Tech and MDEQ sampled.

  1. Does the treated water need to be flowing through the pipes in order for the pipes to be coated so that lead does not leach out? If so then the high lead readings may be due to the fact that the people are not using the water so the water in the pipes is just sitting there. Maybe Flint should provide free water for several months and the residence encouraged residents to leave their faucets running so that the water constantly flows through the pipes so that the pipes get adequately coated.

  2. As a retired QA guy for a metropolitan water agency, I applaud the volunteer group and Virginia Tech for their hard work and efforts to provide a clearer understanding of what lead levels are actually in Flint Michigan’s drinking water. Bravo!
