Flint homeowners are getting new kits to test their tap water from the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality.
For nearly a year, Flint residents have been able to pick up testing kits at water distribution sites. The state would test the water samples for the presence of lead.
The new testing kits will now contain two bottles. Residents will be instructed to fill the smaller bottle first. State officials say the test will produce three results.
The intent is to assess if home water faucets are a significant source of lead in the tap water.
