During a Press Conference on September 15, 2017, at Virginia Tech, Mark Edwards, the lead scientist in the Flint water investigations announced that after 5 rounds of testing on the water of Flint, the levels have dramatically changed and have found themselves slightly below normal. They will continue to conduct tests on the water to make sure that it stays below normal levels and does not fluctuate, but for now, scientifically the crisis is over. The people of Flint have reason to be in doubt and Mark Edwards himself even believes it will be a while before trust is restored between the people of Flint and their government but there is no denying that the trust has been depleted and the damage cannot be undone. DTV has been with the Crisis and we will still be as the entire thing unfolds.
