Flint Water Crisis: Did EPA Keep Memo About Lead Levels Under Wraps?

One was showing signs of stunted growth. "We had to figure out what was going on," she said. So she turned to the Environmental Protection Agency, the federal government agency that regulates drinking water. Walters was confident the agency would come in, find answers and fix things -- quickly.
