In a continuing effort to support the city of Flint after the damage caused by the Flint water crisis, Governor Whitmer signed a bipartisan bill to establish the Flint Settlement Trust Fund, which will house over $600 million dollars for payments to affected residents, especially children who suffered from health problems due to lead and legionella exposure.


Governor Whitmer has also announced several other initiatives to support safe drinking water initiatives across the state, including a lead-line replacement program, wastewater infrastructure investments, the establishment of the Office of the Clean Water Public Advocate in EGLE, and the strictest lead and copper rule requirements in the nation.
