This fall, water experts from around the world are expected to come to Flint for a summit on water infrastructure issues.
Flint’s water crisis has become a symbol for the problems facing aging water systems.
Bryce Feighner is special advisor on drinking water with the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality. He’s helping to organize the summit.
Feighner says they’re reaching out to experts across the U.S. and Europe, seeking innovative answers to the problems that Flint and other cities with aging, faltering municipal water systems face.
