Flint Water Study team gives presentation to community

On January 28, 2016, Dr. Marc Edwards and a team of students and researchers from the Charles E. Via, Jr. Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, presented the work they have done in Flint, Michigan to hundreds of people that came out to Goodwin Hall to support the group. With thousands more watching the livestream online, the team walked the audience through the timeline of their research and the impact that work has had on the residents of Flint.

A feature highlighted in Virginia Tech news said “With the nation focused on Flint, Michigan, for all the wrong reasons — a tainted water supply, denial of a public health crisis, and children exposed to lead — Virginia Tech engineering faculty and student researchers on Thursday talked about how they helped expose the problem and what would happen next.”
