February 17, 2015, Flint, Michigan: We are pleased to announce that Rebecca Fedewa, executive director of the Flint River Watershed Coalition, was invited to serve on the City of Flint’s Water Advisory Committee. With 7 years of experience leading the FRWC and an educational background in fisheries and wildlife, Fedewa is a strong and a reliable resource on the science of watersheds and rivers. She will bring a clear voice and science based facts to the discussion as the community looks for answers and solutions to consistently safe drinking water delivered by the city as well as the health status, care and enjoyment of our Flint River Watershed.
Last month, FRWC released a statement to add clarity to debate over drinking water. You can read the full statement at this link:http://goo.gl/ukRrhq
