~~911: Water!~~

~~~~~~~~~~~Help Save Flint, Michigan's Water Supply~~~~~~~~~

WHAT IS THIS ABOUT?

For the past two years, citizens of Flint, Michigan have been victims of lead poisoning after the government changed their water source from treated Lake Huron water to untreated Flint River water. This was done to save the city money. However, the city did not use the proper chemicals to ensure the water was safe. They also did not upgrade the water pipes which were also leaking chemicals into the water. Citizens complained to the media and the government and soon this became a national story.
