SCIS Alumni introduced an application to help residents of Flint, Michigan in water crisis

mark-allison-flintResearchers introduced a mobile application and a website to help residents of Flint, Michigan easily find water crisis information. Mywater-Flint is an Android application and website, Mywater-Flint.com, developed by Dr. Mark Allison, a former PhD student and now Assistant Professor at the University of Michigan and other researchers from Ann Arbor campuses and funded by Google.org. Residents can access information regarding the water crisis, including a city-wide map showing where lead has been found in drinking water and where crews are currently working to replace the infrastructure.

One of the driving factors with this crisis has been trust. With these tools, you can actually see what’s being done. We’ve increased transparency.
