Flint’s Water Solution

February 18, 2016

Still the talk of the news, Flint’s residents are unsatisfied with the current lead pipes used to deliver drinking water to their homes. Who would blame them? Changing the source of water that flows through the lead piping is not going to solve the issue of lead leaching into the water. Officials failed to add corrosion controls to prevent the pipes from eroding.

The city now has over 1,200 workers involved with the pipeline that’s bringing water from Lake Huron instead of Flint River. An engineering company has been hired to study the city’s water system to locate where the lead pipes are since no body knows! This could take months to organize and solve.

NY Times says Gov. Rick Snyder of Michigan laid out some proposals to help Flint cope with its contaminated water supply. “He proposed spending $195 million on bottled water, filters, infrastructure, nutritional assistance, education and health care. Above all, he said, he will make Flint’s water safe again.”

Let’s hope so! See the whole article here.
