It’s Now Been Three Long Years Since Flint Had Clean Water

Common Dreams – April 24, 2014 was the day that city officials made the disastrous decision to switch the city’s water source to the Flint River, whose polluted water corroded aged lead pipes and poisoned residents’ water with lead.

The city still does not have clean water. Residents must purchase filters to reduce the lead in their water, and the city says it will be three more years before all of the city’s lead pipes are replaced, according to NPR.
