It will affect the city and its residents for decades to come.  

Michigan Radio and countless other local and national news outlets have reported various aspects of the crisis, from how it unfolded to how the crisis will affect the city's children as they grow into adults. And that reporting will continue into the foreseeable future, since Flint water is still not safe to drink, unfiltered.

The Center for Michigan's Bridge Magazine has now published a book that aims to bring that story -- at least what we know now -- together in one place. The book is called Poison on Tap: How Government Failed Flint, and the Heroes Who Fought Back.

John Bebow, President and CEO of The Center for Michigan, joined us today.
