Speaking live on WWJ Newsradio Friday morning, Flint Mayor Karen Weaver said she was kept in the dark about the rising number of Legionnaires’ cases.
“Just like the lead went under radar for so long — you know, when this whole water crisis started, it was really around the cost of the water because we were paying too much for our water,” said Weaver. “Then we found out about the E. coli and the TTHMs (which are chemical byproducts from the disinfection process).
“The lead still had gone undetected because that’s not what people were looking for,” Weaver continued. “So, I’m assuming, I’m imagining that’s how it happened with the Legionnaires — because I just heard about it when the announcement came.
