Morgantown, W.Va. – Megan Hudock, WBOY reporter, recently highlighted WVU student efforts in collecting over 500 cases of bottled water for residents of Flint, Mich.
Paul Ziemkiewicz, director of the West Virginia Water Research Institute, offered comment on the Flint state of emergency. “Crises like this occur because we haven’t paid enough attention to our water infrastructure in this country. Maintenance is relatively cheap. These crises can become very expensive.”
The West Virginia Water Research Institute, a program of the National Research Center for Coal and Energy at West Virginia University, serves as a statewide vehicle for performing research related to water issues. WVWRI is the premiere water research center in West Virginia and, within selected fields, an international leader.
