Flint poisons residents
"damage irreversible "
Town faces crisis
Evidence found shows governor Rick Snyder has ignored this issue. Their water has been contaminated for two years with lead. This began in April 2014 because the town switched its water supply to the Flint river , to save money. Although there were complaints soon after by residents about its smell and taste , they were ignored.
Studies shows that lead in water should not exceed fifteen parts per billion. However the lead count in the Flint water supple is one thousand per billion. This water is more poisonous than toxic waste. Even car companies stopped using this water to build their cars because it caused car parts to rust.
Not only did the Flunt government know about this poisonous water they tried to cover it up. They went as far as changing the lab results of the water tested from Flint. The residents were still forced to pay for this water. They were essentially paying to poison themselves.
