The Flint Water Crisis is one of the most devastating Legionnaires’ disease outbreaks in U.S. history and led to 12 deaths due to exposure to waterborne legionella and 91 confirmed cases of Legionnaires disease (Roy and Edwards, 2019). This seminar will explore the underlying causes that contributed to the Flint Water Crisis, the lessons learnt from citizen science initiatives to monitor the contamination of water supplies in Flint, and the long-term consequences that communities in Flint are still experiencing in the aftermath of the Flint Water Crisis.

This talk is part of the Cambridge Disaster Research Network series.
