Flint Mayor Dayne Walling has written to the White House requesting that it works with local officials to improve the city’s water system. The letter asks for participation in the Technical Advisory Water Committee, a board of experts who oversee the technical issues related to the city’s water system.

Walling says he has been in touch with the EPA Regional Administrator for the Great Lakes District.

"We’re coordinating time to talk about the specific needs if the city as it relates to public health, water treatment infrastructure improvements and identify the best role for the EPA to play. " "

Walling says he wants to take advantage of the best experts in the state and country.

Flint residents have complained for months about the city water. Walling says there have already been improvements to the water treatment plant.
