BLACKSBURG (WSLS 10) -  Virginia Tech students share findings from Flint, Michigan they call shocking.

Virginia tech professor Marc Edwards led a team of faculty and students to independently test water samples in Flint and Detroit after people in Michigan complained about poor quality.

One student says she found lead levels were 18 times higher in Flint water than in Detroit water.

Edwards and his team of scientists and students will present their full findings Thursday night at seven in Goodwin Hall.
