Flint Michigan Water

Sahara Hassan, Reporter February 19, 2019
 In April of 2014, lead was released into the water of Flint, Michigan. The lead was released into the water when the river water damaged the city pipes and those damaged pipes released lead into the water. This crisis affected 100,000 people. The residents of Flint, Michigan were told to only use bottled water for cooking, cleaning, drinking, bathing, etc. In 2017 the water got better but wasn’t safe yet so the people had to continue using bottled water until the water isn’t contaminated with lead anymore. It has been said on Michigan Radio that this issue will not be solved any later than 2020. The timing for is set for 2020 because there are 18,000 services that have been contaminated that need to be replaced.
