The Michigan Department of Environmental Quality sued the City of Flint today over the City Council’s foot-dragging in approving Detroit’s Great Lakes Water Authority as its long-term drinking water source. The city has been buying water from the GLWA by extending contracts for several months at a time. The mayor wants to strike a 30-year agreement.The lawsuit is a striking turnabout for the DEQ, the agency that investigations have shown was largely to blame for the city’s disastrous switch away from Detroit water to the Flint River as a temporary drinking source in April 2014.
