The drinking water crisis in Flint, Michigan (USA) began as a result of a lack of corrosion control in April 2014, which resulted in elevated lead levels. This paper presents the water quality monitoring results of a citizen science sampling effort that continued through August 2017. It compares the monitoring results to the water quality test results presented by the State of Michigan in 2017.
