The Community Water Resource Site at the St. Mark Missionary Baptist Church will be closed for the day on Saturday, Aug. 27, due to prior facility commitments, according to the Michigan State Police, Emergency Management and Homeland Security Division (MSP/EMHSD).

The 2nd ward site will stop distributing water supplies at 8 p.m. Friday, Aug. 26, and reopen at noon on Monday, Aug. 29. Flint water system customers are encouraged to visit any of the other eight locations to obtain bottled water, water filters, replacement cartridges and at-home water testing kits.

In this day and age, no one should have to worry about whether their water will make them sick.

I will continue to work tirelessly to hold all officials accountable and transparent to the public. In the meantime, I encourage the people of Flint to get educated and follow the same precautions my family will be taking.

Get your children tested

If you’re concerned your children may have been overexposed to lead, contact your family physician or the Genesee County Health Department at 810-257-3833 immediately. Children under age 7 are eligible for a free blood test measuring lead levels at the health department. According to the Mayo Clinic, a lead level of 5 mcg/dL or higher is unsafe. Levels of 45 mcg/dL or higher may require treatment.
