FOIA Information: Michigan Health Department (DHHS) Blood Lead Spike Report Not Communicated Back to Mr. Muchmore

Attached is a packet of information illustrating the missed opportunity from late July 2015 DHHS analysis. One illustrative graph from the packet compares numbers of children with elevated blood lead from the year before the switch to Flint River (blue line) to after the switch (red line). The higher incidence in July, Aug and September of 2014 after the switch and noted by DHHS are apparent. Another spike in blood lead (not shown in this data) occurred in summer of 2015, and was not detected until October 2015.

  1. The employees that work for the state are also responsible. They remained quiet and could have reported concerns anonymously. DHHS has stopped taking applications for health care and is closing services for those enrolled. The village that is needed has been abandoned, replaced with a level of incompetence and inarticulate talking heads. I do not know where the sense of human values are derived from at the various agencies involved but they are not sustainable human values they are repulsive.
