Arizona Congressman Paul Gosar is on the committee and grilled acting deputy administrator for the office of water Joel Beauvair about what happened after the EPA first heard about the water situation in Flint. Gosar told Beauvair “I find it despicable that EPA administrator Gina McCarthy shows up in Flint, yesterday instead of going there immmediately.” He added, “especially after hearing from people about what’s happening to children and lead poisoning.” Flint officials decided to change its water supply in 2014. That change from the Detroit water system to the Flint River, resulted in lead from old pipes getting into the city’s water system.
