A new NOVA special about the Flint water crisis, “Troubled Waters,” deals with impact that “environmental criminals” had in worsening the crisis, a panelist at the Television Critics Association press tour said on Monday.
“At it’s core, this is a story of science and ethics,” civil engineering professor Marc Edwards said. “It’s about how the environmental policemen that we pay to protect us — civil servants, scientists and engineers — turned into environmental criminals.”
He continued: “If you look at the emails we obtained by a Freedom of Information Act request, the officials did the right thing and reached out to the appropriate people at the EPA… and unfortunately they were lied to.”
