Obama EPA Official Resigns As Feds Admit Blame In Flint Water Crisis

One of the EPA’s top officials is out of a job after failing to act in Flint for months despite knowledge problems were not being properly handled.

According to The Hill:

“The regional Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) chief responsible for Michigan is resigning amid charges that she did not do enough to prevent the Flint, Mich., drinking water crisis.

Susan Hedman, regional administrator for the EPA’s Chicago-based region 5, submitted her resignation Thursday, effective Feb. 1, the EPA said.

“EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy has accepted given Susan’s strong interest in ensuring that EPA region 5’s focus remains solely on the restoration of Flint’s drinking water,” an EPA spokeswoman said late Thursday.

Hedman told the Detroit News last week that her office knew in April 2015 that Flint’s action to switch its water supply could cause increased pipe corrosion and spiked lead levels.

She did not notify the public or take similar action, instead only pushing Michigan officials to fix the problems, the News said.”
