Flint Water Lawsuit Asks For $722 Million For 1,700 Flint Residents
1,700 Flint residents have come together to bring a class action lawsuit against the EPA for $722.4 Million over the Flint Water Crisis.
The lawsuit is very direct with its claims. It simply states that the EPA did not follow mandates and directives after the issues arose from the Flint Water Crisis. It also points out that the EPA took several months to act after it became aware of the problem.
The damages listed in the lawsuit, according to Mlive include the following:
- Lead Poisoning
- Physical Injury
- Dermatological Disorders
- Hair Loss
- Gastrointestinal Disorders
- Loss of Property Value
The EPA has had an administrative payment on order for $722.4 Million since 2016, but still has not accepted or denied by the EPA. They are yet to acknowledge the pending lawsuit that was filed on the 30th.
