WMOM News brought to light a Detroit News article published January 28, 2016 on the elevated levels of lead in the blood of children locally and statewide. The article highlighted three years of samples that showed elevated levels of lead in the states children. Some causes can be traced to old homes with lead paint and soils contain lead as well.
With the Flint water crisis at its peak, WMOM News had a chance to talk with Ludington City Manager John Shay about the city of Ludington and the 49431 zip code area. He assured WMOM News that the water provided to the city of Ludington was lead free. He offered several documents showing the results of testing. He was unable to offer any reasons for the elevated levels in the 49431 zip code area.
